Now I think that there is going to be a new story coming up in the new year acording to my sources. the government has noticed that people can subscribe to Sky Sports etc. via their iPad or iPhone and not need a license even though they are receiving live TV. And so the powers that be are thinking about how to tax people with these devices. This will be interesting as people pay say £50 per month for their iPhone and then have a tax of £12.50 slapped on them, whether they receive Sky or not. Of course Rupert thinks he should have a share .... so you can see where I'm going with this.
If you read the threatening letters you get regarding TV tax, mobile phones are already included.
TV receiving equipment includes:
* A colour or black and white television
* A computer
* A mobile phone
* A games console
* A digital box
* A DVD/VHS recorder
