    Does this mean, (in the UK), if you don't actually hold a valid tv licence,
    you will have to purchase one before watching your tv phone ?

    Or aren't Nokia releasing it in the UK

    Just wondered .............

    I Dont belive that you need a licence for a television that is ONLY battery
    operated.

    Having said that You can use your mobile from the mains when it's
    charging so you may need a licence unless os course the TV option
    automatically cuts off when charging !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Some countries dont require a TV licence. e.g. NZ tv's dont require
    licenses.

    Who pays a broadcasting fee in nz? Certainly not me. Maybe it comes out of
    the taxes but its certainly not paid directly from the public in general
    like a few years ago where it was around the $110 per year in which they
    scrapped. But as for licence, no licence is required to watch tv in nz.

    In the UK you need a TV licence for ALL Television receiving equipment. NO
    EXCEPTION. Mains or no mains.

    No escape they have it all stitched up. Including US.

    Seems like one of those laws that has to bend to the improvement of
    technology. With TV receivers in phones this law can't be enforced
    anymore. Such laws once existed for radio's too here, but would be
    impossible to enforce right now.

    I noticed that the TV broadcasts on the phones have a 5 to 10 minute
    delay. This may be how they get around the legal issues.

    Then you don't have a TV receiver in the phone but a phone that can
    handle videostreams via GPRS or UMTS. That's not a TV receiver, but
    probably internet technology. Considering the costs of such streams
    that's uninteresting for most people.

    Thanks for that Mikey its cleared up a point that I was Mis informed upon.

    Seems from the document that as long as the house where you live has a
    licence, anyone who lives there can use a TV with internal batteries
    anywhere else.
