I had this experience a few years ago when a man wearing na NHK ID knocked on my door. In Nihongo, he asked if I have a TV set. I said yes and he started asking me to pay. I told him that although I have a TV, I do not watch TV shows because I use my TV as my computer monitor. He showed my a copy of the law and insisted that I pay. I politely told him that I will not pay and closed my door.
I asked some Japanese friend if they are paying for their Television and the majority answered in the affirmative.
The Television store should tell people who are buying televisions about this license thing. Especially if the buyer is a foreigner.
