Black and white TV li­cences in the city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

De­spite HD and 3D be­com­ing part of ev­ery­day life, more than 30 homes in the city are still watch­ing their favourite TV pro­grammes in black and white.

Fig­ures re­leased to­day by TV Li­cens­ing re­veal af­ter nearly 46 years of colour trans­mis­sions, 104 black and white TV Li­cences are still in force in Cam­bridgeshire - with 34 in Peter­bor­ough.

De­spite the his­toric switch to dig­i­tal tele­vi­sion last year, and an in­crease in the sale of flat screen televisions, tablets, lap­tops and smart- phones over the Christ­mas pe­riod, some homes in the area just can­not bear to part with their trusty black and white tele­vi­sion sets.

Na­tion­ally, in 2000there were 212,000 black and white TV Li­cences is­sued, but at the start of 2013, just 13,202 were in force.
