Do I need a TV Licence to do this...

The only live TV I watch is news programmes like Sky and GB News, I never watch the BBC. But according to the rules I still need a licence.

But then I thought of a possible workaround...

If I watch these channels over the internet, so not through an aerial, I still need a licence because it's live TV. However when you watch these channels on the internet they allow you to rewind them. So if I watch one of these channels but rewind it 10 minutes I am no longer watching live TV!

In your opinions, do I then still need a licence?
