If you’re not from the UK, or even if you’re not of “a certain age”, you may not know what a TV Detector van is, or even why they’re needed. In the UK, the BBC or British Broadcasting Corporation is funded almost entirely by a licence fee backed by law that states that anyone in the UK who watches live TV transmissions needs to pay the licence. The odd thing is you don’t even need to be watching BBC content – if you watch commercial channels live, you still need to pay.
