So how does one buy a large enough monitor that is incapable of receiving broadcasts? Perhaps the UK market is different, but all the living-room-size monitors I see in the USA are capable of receiving broadcasts.
Actually, I glossed over. You merely have to not use it for receiving broadcasts. It's prefectly legal to own an unused receiver without a license. Capita (the licesing people) don't like to tell you this since they rely on the license for their money---the BBC gets a fixed free and Capita keep the difference.
Also, they've never prosecuted a single person who hasn't let them in and owned up.
