Price of TV licence set to rise in April
The cost of the annual TV licence fee will increase to Â£147, from Â£145.50, from April 1 this year.
This is the first time the licence fee has increased since April 2010.
The Government is responsible for setting the level of the licence fee and last year announced that it would rise in line with inflation for five years from this April.
