    CH4+1 and TV license 11th Feb 19 at 11:34 AM
    Does anyone know if Ch4+1 or other +1 channels via freeview would be classed as a live TV station? My guess is that they are, but wanting to check before I cancel my license.

    For years I didn't watch TV and now rarely do, but I do enjoy channel 4 news - so wanting to clarify before I make the leap back into almost tv-free land!

    I think the news is available on All 4 sometimes after screening.

    As above: yes. If you want to ditch your Licence, have a read here: https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/utilities/tv-licence/. It's reasonably straightforward, but you do need to be on top of the rules.

    I only watch it to see if Jon Snow's head will explode before Brexit.

    Yes, it is.
