Niall’s virtual diary archives – Wednesday 20th August 2014

by . Last updated .

Wednesday 20th August 2014: 5.27pm. Just got visited by the TV licence inspectors, which I believe is my first time ever in my life. I said we didn't have one because it comes in over the internet, and I showed him my extremely cheap XBMC-on-a-chinese-TV-stick solution which uses an old computer monitor and old computer speakers. He checked there was no connection between it and any form of aerial - which would be hard, as the chinese TV stick has no such ability - and that was that, no €1000 fine for me.

So there you go, they actually do send TV licence inspectors to your house. I had genuinely thought it was all hot air!
