Watching TV (Olympics etc) at work, your company needs a TV License.

Watching the Olympics at work may annoy the boss, but not as much as the £1,000 fine the company could get if doesn't have a TV licence.

Correct, FYI you should have a TV license in order to watch any streamed TV that's otherwise broadcast over freeview/satelite etc.

What if I'm in the park watching it on a mobile device? Using a solar charger? Who needs the license then? The council?

What about other organizations such as Hospitals, Libraries, and such like places do they need a license.

You would need your own licence.

Hospitals need their own licence. Libraries? None of my local libraries allow streaming and the like.
