    It looks like 'interesting' is another word I've misunderstood the meaning of.

    It would be interesting. It's uniqueness would make it extremely valuable.

    In Britain
    to license is a verb
    licence is a noun, hence television licence is correct.

    In the USA license is used for both, but they don't need a TV license ;)

    Actually, although the spelling is licence in this country when used as a noun it can be used as a verb as well.

    Would be more interesting than some of the films that certain posters have listed in their top 10 films.

    I saw Reginald D Hunter last week and had to chuckle at his Dad having asked him if it was true that in England you need a licence to operate a TV.

    Well strictly speaking it's not. Unless you are watching or recording LIVE television, as in as a programme is broadcast (or catch up on iPlayer now) you don't need a TV licence to watch something on a television (such as a DVD).

    The Iplayer system is not about a license its about delivering targeted programmes. We have virgin media and it records all sorts of **** and tells us we want to watch it

    A television is capable of receiving live TV so you do need a licence.
