Two-thirds of TV Licensing prosecutions at one London court targeted women

In Germany the licence (GEZ) is pretty much the same as in the UK, except that it applies to anyone who has a PC or mobile device with an Internet connection, as well as TV owners. You don't have to watch the state sponsored networks, just the fact you have a device capable of watching TV or streamed video is enough to warrant paying for a licence.

At least they have stopped charging for each invididual device and person in the house. You now pay a flat rate for the house.
