It's no wonder people like RainbowSix think they can cheat the system. it's a farce. However "a farce" does not equal "a defence". Choose whose advice you trust carefully. If you need an indicator as to how much RainbowSix trusts their own advice, read up on VPN and ask yourself why they would need to bring it into this conversation...

I play by the system however if the system does not require something then I feel no obligation in providing it.

To quote someone else:
If you don't fish, is it cheating not to buy a rod licence?
If you don't shoot, is it cheating not to buy a FAC/SGL?
If you don't holiday abroad, is it cheating not to buy a Passport?
If you don't drive, is it cheating not to buy a Driving Licence, and not pay VED?

Simply put - "no".

And if you actually read what I have said - I do currently have a TV license.
When I am no longer watching TV as it is being broadcast then I will not require one so will be cancelling it. Live TV now is rubbish & not worth watching - I can see everything I want to on catchup or via the internet news etc without having to watch it live.

Which I see that you are agreeing with, that a license is not required to watch catchup TV, so not required to own a TV, just required to watch live TV (as it is being broadcast).

If live TV is rubbish, why would you want to watch programmes on Catch Up?

I worded it badly. I should have put "It's no wonder people like RainbowSix think the system can be cheated."

In post 35 you said you were going to watch TV online through a VPN. There's no reason to do that unless you're wanting to hide your identity. It's not unreasonable for us to think that it's to avoid leaving a trail of evidence that would lead TVL to your door.
