Nearly a million Britons cancelled their TV licence last year as viewers ditch BBC in favour of streaming services
More than 860,000 TV licenses were cancelled in 2017-18, compared to 798,000 in 2016-17.
The figures amount to 2,300 cancellations a day.
The charge applies whether the show is being watched on a TV set, computer, tablet or any other equipment.
In March last year, 25.8 million licenses were held.
Streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Now TV do not require any license.
