I am sharing a student house with 6 others. The house has a tv and I want to buy a tv licence but the others do not want to. They say they will not watch the tv. Can I disable the tv so that it is not liable for a licence (and what do I need to do to disable it?). Or can I ask the landlord to buy the tv licence and take everybody’s share from their deposit? I am unable and unwilling to pay for the whole licence myself but do not want to expose myself to the risk of a fine or prosecution.
