The free licence will cover all the equipment in the property, meaning family or carers living in the same home could also benefit.
Anyone aged 74 or over can begin planning for the concession immediately by applying for a short-term licence which will last between one and 11 months.
Janet Morrison, chief executive of Independent Age, said: "We know from experience just how much many older people value their TVs. For many, television is a great source of information and fun, but for those who find it difficult to get out and about due to ill health or mobility problems, it can also be a much-needed source of company.
"Many older people live on very limited incomes, so the free television licence that is available to people aged 75 and over is a really valued concession. We urge all people over 75 to remember to apply for their free TV licence."
