Is it true that when I buy a new TV, the shop has to take back my old one free of charge?

Yes, but this is not just for TVs, it works for any electrical product from stereos to computers. But be warned, it is done on a 'like for like basis' so don't expect the shop to recycle your old fridge when you're only buying an electric toothbrush! Instead, bring this fridge to your local recycling centre. Remember the 15 day rule! You have 15 days to bring back your WEEE to the shop after buying a new item. Bring your receipt as proof of purchase.
