Did you know in the United Kingdom a 'television viewing' license is required together with a special revenue stamp ?

Since the resumption of regular television services after World War II it has been necessary for viewers to purchase a viewing license. However, it was not until 1972 that TV license revenue stamps were issued for use on such licenses.

Speaking of tv According to the USPS e-zine, Links, more than 500 postal facilities across the country now have available to them a cable TV channel called POSTAL VISION.

Designed for employees, it is aired in post office break rooms and cafeterias four times a week. It has news, information about jobs, health and safety tips and stories about ‘heroes’ — postal employees who helped others while on the job.

No word if they have had any stories about 'stamp collectors from hell' or how to cancel a stamp properly.
