TV Licensing wants to make money advice and wider sector service users aware of the fact that the BBC will be providing local communities with a TV license dispensation on Monday 19 September 2022 to mark the funeral of Her Majesty the Queen, who was the embodiment of public service.

This will allow any communal setting where TV is not usually watched, such as town halls, community centres and libraries across the UK, to screen the live programmes without needing to purchase a TV licence.

By law, if live television or BBC iPlayer is viewed on any premises, those premises must be covered by a valid TV Licence. However, in exceptional circumstances, the BBC can grant a dispensation for the temporary viewing of television, so long as the viewing is for the sole purpose of screening an event which is judged by the BBC to be of national importance.
