Free TV licences for over 75s extended for another year

Thu, 26 May 2022

The Manx Government will continue to meet the cost of TV licences for residents aged over 75 who don’t receive income support until the end of 2023.

This decision has been reached in light of rising energy bills and increased pressure on household budgets.

A review of universal provision is currently under way, with the intention of exploring options around the introduction of additional eligibility criteria when the present arrangement expires on 31 December 2022.

Today’s announcement means any changes will now come into effect after 31 December 2023.
