This make me furious
in Over 50s MoneySaving

I have recently received my TV license reminder and have been informed that no longer is this renewable at the Post Office. The new way id via PayPoint outlets shops and the two closest to my house are listed. HOWEVER, these are shops that are not convenient as they are passed on my way to town in the bus. I looked on the net for other in our town and thought I'd renew the license there, WRONG, it seems not all PayPoint outlet shops have the machinery to accept cards, so without that amount of cash handy, I had to leave. On returning home, I saw there was an 0870 number to call if there were problems, 0870 high premium, I looked on saynoto0870 and found there was a FREE number available so called that number and complained.I am of the opinion that not all people have access to the net, some may no even have a phone, finding that the paypoint shops will only accept cash, will lead to many people being forced to carry large sums of money about. Then to think that they are forcing this wretched 0870 number on us when they have a free one, is the last straw. I've emailed TV watchdog, now here, even if it is in the wrong section, so be it. This has to be addressed now. Don't you agree ?
