Nearly half a million people avoided buying a TV licence !
Nearly half a million people avoided buying a television licence last year because of a loophole created by the BBC iPlayer.
Viewers who use the service to watch catch-up programmes online for free can escape the £145.50 annual charge by declaring they do not own a television set or see live shows.Last year, 463,846 opted out in this way, a rise of more than 35,000 in 12 months.
It means the BBC has 1.9million residential and business addresses registered on a database of those who are exempt from paying the licence fee.
The figures, obtained under a Freedom of Information request, have sparked fears that the Corporation is struggling to adapt to the internet age.
