Needless to say, the TV Licensing web site makes it as difficult as possible to do this. I was hoping to find a cancellation form, but nothing, so tried to contact them online via email or their chat line.
Again, unsuccessful; neither worked properly. The only other option was to telephone.
Expecting a long wait, I was pleasantly surprised to get through within a few minutes, though they insisted on speaking to Marge, as it's in her name.
I cancelled my direct debit with my bank (yes, I pay for it!), and all done now.
No more subsidising the politically biased BBC!
Strange. I cancelled mine online at the end of May as it had expired in any case.
Still got a reminder to renew a few days later though, but they mun bollocks. I've unplugged the TV aerial from the TV and the PVR just in case they come checking. Anything I watch now is streamed from Amazon or catch-up TV (no licence required for either).
Speaking of getting rid of trash, I'm kicking Virgin Media into touch as they are robbing bastards. PlusNet have installed my new fibre broadband today which is £23 per month cheaper. Admittedly, my VM was 100mb/s as opposed to my now 36mb/s but it's still okay for streaming and fast enough for downloads. That's an annual saving of £430
