0.04 per cent of UK viewers still watching in black and white

New data from TV Licencing revealed that there are 11,550 black and white TV licences still in force in the UK—down from 13,000 this time last year.

Despite colour TV licences being around for nearly 48 years—and the digital switchover forcing black and white viewers to buy an additional set top box—0.04 per cent of households adhere to viewing black and white television.

A colour TV licence currently costs £145.50 and a black and white licence £49; both are not due to be reviewed until 2016.
