Help for blind TV viewers

editorial image

People in Ballymoney who are blind (severely sight impaired), or live with someone who is, should make sure they aren’t missing out on a concessionary TV Licence which allows them to save 50% on the cost.

TV Licensing has been working with Director of RNIB Northern Ireland to make sure anyone who is eligible to receive the concession is aware and takes advantage of the reduced TV Licence fee. There are 18 blind licences in force in Ballymoney.

A blind concession TV Licence costs £72.75 for colour and £24.50 for a black and white TV Licence.

If you live with someone who is eligible and already have a full fee TV Licence in your name, you can transfer the licence to the name of the person who registered as severely sight impaired and halve the cost. To do this, simply fill in the form available at tvlicensing.co.uk/blind or contact TV Licensing on 0300 790 0366.

Anyone affected by sight loss can get TV Licensing information by email or in Braille, large print or audio by calling 0300 555 0300. An audio podcast about the concession is available online at audioboo.com/tvlicensing.
