Do I need to pay TV Licence FEEs for using as monitor in client waiting room?

As my question states it clearly, do I need to pay TV licence for using a 32” TV in my client waiting area? The main purpose of this is to make my waiting room more professional and do some presentation in the monitor which will be mounted on wall.

I have seen so many of them in different offices but I am not sure if we need to pay for TV Licence. I have no intention to use this for TV purpose.

You answer, time and effort is much appreciated.

Regards,

MSB
