Thousands still watch in Black and White

The BBC have recently released some surprising figures about tv license subscriptions. The figures released coincide with the 40th anniversary of colour broadcasts but show that there are still nearly 30,000 people watching TV in black and white.

This amount is based on the number of black and white subscriptions users are paying for and is quite surprising knowing the uptake of flatscreen tv’s and the online streaming services provided by the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and similar services is higher than ever.

To be able to continue to use these sets after digital switchover, a set top box will be required.
