You're unlikely to be "caught" - there are no detector vans in France.

But do you really have the confidence to fill in the form that exempts you from the licence fee (paid via the tax d'habitation),  when you in fact DO have a TV?

They've really got you if they DO find out, as you will have filled in and signed a form with inaccurate info....

If your TV won't get French TV because it's a PAL/system I set,  then a good way of learning the language (if you don't know it already) is to buy a French TV and tune in.   Then you'll have justified the licence fee.

I'm not trying to lecture you,  but when in Rome  etc etc
