TV Licensing: Millions of Sports Fans to Tune in
LONDON, July 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
TV Licensing figures reveal millions of sports fans set to tune in to watch the action.
With a series of major sporting events hitting our screens this summer - such as Wimbledon, the World Championships in Athletics, the World Rowing Championships and Formula 1 - new figures from TV Licensing suggest that sports fans will be tuning in to watch in droves and in a variety of different ways:
TV Licensing is reminding people that whatever equipment you use to watch this summer's tournament - a black and white or colour TV, computer, mobile phone or games console - you need a TV Licence if you want to watch or record the coverage as it is being shown on TV.
Suzanne Stevenson, TV Licensing spokesperson, said:
There are more ways than ever before for people to watch their favourite sporting events, whether on the move via their smartphone, on the latest high definition, flat screen TVs or on an old fashioned black and white set.Â However you choose to keep up with this great summer of sport, it is important to be aware of the need to be covered by a valid TV Licence to watch or record programmes at the same time as they are shown on TV.
