More than 50 18-25-year-olds in North Somerset were caught watching television without a licence last year.
A total of 57 young adults were caught, according to new figures.
A TV Licensing South West spokesman said: “We want to make sure students and young people know one is needed by law to watch or record live television, on any device including a laptop, tablet, mobile phone or games console.
“A licence costs on average £12.13 a month which goes towards services like Radio One’s Big Weekend, BBC iPlayer, Newsbeat and BBC One Match of the Day.”
People caught watching live programmes without a licence can be fined up to £1,000.
