BBC Licensing – what you need to know
There actually is no need to buy a license, and you won’t be asked to supply any personal information to the BBC. All you need to do when you see the dialog box (see the handy illustration below) is click ‘I have a TV license.’
Another concern has been whether the BBC can somehow how figure out that you’re using a proxy. Don’t worry, the answer is no!
Once you do that, you’ll be on your way to all the BBC programming you know and love, whether you’re breathlessly watching Paul and Mary judging bakes on The Great British Bake Off or catching up on Poldark’s bodice ripping adventures.
