Mine's on, has been for a while really, about 6 weeks! But my house is really small so I can put it on for a couple of hours & then the house is boiling, so not os bad. I'm always cold (apart from when I'm out power-walking!) so it's slippers, fleecy socks and plenty of layers for me, heating or no heating!
Actually, the licence fee is worth it in its entirety for The Thick of It.
I agree, yet I watch it on iPlayer. I've had no TV for two years now and watch what I want, when I want on catch up. Mostly about 10 regular series and the odd documentary on 4oD. I'd never go back to having a telly, although like others when I first stopped my licence I had months of faff with them thinking I was avoiding payment. They stopped bothering me eventually!
