This is a common misconception regarding TV License. MDA even had a pamphlet campaign regarding this information. Reference from MDA
- Residential TV License
- A TV License is required if you operate or have, on any premise you owned or occupied, TV sets or any equipment that is capable of receiving broadcasting services. Only one license is required for a house/unit regardless of how many TV sets it has.
The TV License is valid for a calendar year, from 1 January to 31 December and is renewable on a yearly basis thereafter. The annual license fee is S$110.
For new TV Licenses that are applied for in any part of the year after 1 January, the license fee payable will be pro-rated from the date of application to 31 December. If the TV License is taken up between 1 November and 31 December, the license fee payable will be pro-rated to 31 December of the following year, i.e. it will be inclusive of the following year's license fee as well. This is to minimize the inconvenience to license applicants.
