    Cool Television without any kind of payment

    How is it said in English the kind of TV broadcasting which doesn't require any kind of payment to see it?

    Thanks a lot

    In American use only:

    • Regular broadcast television
    • Free TV

    In most countries other than the US, you have to pay to use a television. This is accomplished by the imposition of an annual tax on each household where a TV is operating.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) Here in my American city, most people pay for cable television because they are

    able to watch more than a hundred channels!

    (2) Those people who do not wish to pay for cable TV can still get about a dozen

    free over-the-air stations.

    In the UK, you have to have a TV licence, which pays for the BBC, but you must have the licence to watch anything, so even free channels aren't free.
