Residents of Great Britain need to buy a separate TV license for each TV set at home.

BBC is public television and is funded by licensing fees paid by citizens who have TVs and other devices where they can watch live broadcasts like computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and even gaming consoles.
This license costs £145.50 per year and residents either have to buy it or to reject it with a written application explaining their reason for not watching TV. Otherwise, they could be slapped with a huge fine. It is impossible to reject the service and watch TV programs illegally — there is a special service called the Enforcement Division (you can see the retro car from this service in the above photo) that will come to your home without warning and check.
