why do deaf people have to pay the full TV licence when they don't get the same benefit as hearing people. I pay a full licence but despite having a free view TV and Virgin Media digital box I cannot access subtitled catch up, TV, nor Iplayer despite having a smart TV. I can't afford to upgrade my TV package which may help me access the catch up tv in subtitles for some programmes so I've heard but I can't afford it. if subtitling is so expensive and the number of viewers that need this doesn't warrant the expense then surely it's wrong to charge a full TV licence. signed programmes are on at anti social hours no good to me because I work full time. I cannot watch a programme without subtitles so affectively both free view and digital offers limited enjoyable TV and limited choice thus the numerous channels without subtitles are a waste of space for the likes of me. When will the TV suppliers get their act together to provide equal access for all so all full laying TV licence at lease enjoy all free view programmes like everyone else.

MikeB: would you please send me the link to this as I can't find it on normal free view nor via the smart tv, I know people who have some subtitled tv on catch up Iplayer but they have to pay extra to their digital supplier to get a higher costing tv package which I can't afford!
