For over 75s

Free TV Licences

How to get your free TV Licence


If you are over 75, you are entitled to a free TV licence for your main home address. You will still have to pay for your other properties if you have more than one.


If your TV licence expires when you are 74 you can apply for a short term licence to last until your 75th birthday.


When you apply for your free TV license, they will refund any months you have already paid past your 75th birthday.


The quickest way to apply is online and the TV Licensing website has more information about eligibility criteria.


Alternatively, you can call 0300 7906165.


You can also get a 50% discount if you, or someone you live with, is registered blind or severely partially sighted. To apply you will need to send a copy of your blind registration certificate, together with a cheque for 50% of the license cost and your address details to the TV licensing company.
