Currently all households with somebody aged over 75 years old are entitled to receive a free TV license. The cost of this scheme was funded by the Government since it was introduced in 2000. In 2020 the current scheme is set to come to an end.
Any new scheme from June 2020 will be provided directly by the BBC themselves. The BBC are consulting with the public on the issue. If you haven't already visit www.bbc.co.uk/yoursay and have your say
