thanks to all who replied. It appears my brother still has to pay but the good news is that I may be exempt!

Does the figure for combined income apply to two people at the same address who are not married?

It's all there in the link I posted-including the government website explaining income thresholds.

Even the link posted above mentions the exemptions and the income thresholds . it is nothing to do with 0 income , but income tax liabilities . 

Direct from the posted link, as an example , if 2 people have an income of less than 16311€ for 2014 and one person is above the age of 60 you are exempt from tax d'habitation, this means that you do not pay the tV licence fee either. 

So, to come back to the OP, it depends on whether your income level for the combined household, if you were single , on something around the UK basic pension and over 60 - you would be exempt .

not pay because they only have english tv??? haha, even if you dont watch any tv, if you hae one, or you have a dvd player you pay! some people over 75 years old dont have to pay, but its not that easy as just being 75...read the rules in the link above. and your income would have to be 0 and even then there are rules...just talk to your impots if you want to know and do not bet on not paying it as the fines are very heavy and you do not want to get it after a couple of years, and yes they do come to inspect, so be careful!

Forget the English TV only idea, if you have a TV attached to an aerial you have to have a licence.

Absolute rubbish, it is based on income levels,if you are below a certain income threshold you do not pay  the TV licence fee
