Kayleigh is totally correct in her understanding of the legislation: As long as her home address (e.g. non-term-time address) is covered by a valid TV licence, then she is covered to watch elsewhere on portable equipment powered by its own internal battery and without an external aerial.
That's not, however, what TV Licensing's PR harlots told her when she asked them on Twitter.
We were happy to set the record straight!
