Watching TV in libraries

To comply with new TV Licencing regulations that came into effect from 1 September 2016, all libraries hold a TV Licence, allowing customers to watch live TV, on-demand or catch-up TV on devices supplied by the library or devices owned by customers.

Note: This does not apply to Library Access Points (LAPs). Customers will need to ask LAP staff if their premises comply with the new TV Licencing regulations.
