Nope, it's a licence to receive TV - not a licence to receive BBC
I'm sure this was confused by moving the responsibilty for collection to the BBC in 1991. With the BBC performing tax collection for a government policy, it's easy to believe you are paying just to watch the BBC.
I thought about using "wireless", but so many things are wireless these days!
Except the original law that brought in the licence fee was the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1904. :D

Even though people were used to using wireless controls while working ... such as farmers whistling to their sheep dogs. :D
