TV License


In half of Asia and Africa and two-thirds of Europe, households pay a "TV license" every year.

A television license or broadcast receiving a license is a payment required in many countries for the reception of television broadcasts, or the possession of a television set where some broadcasts are funded in full or in part by the license fee paid. The fee is sometimes also required to own a radio or receive radio broadcasts.

A TV license is therefore effectively a hypothecated tax to fund public broadcasting, thus allowing public broadcasters to transmit television programs without, or with only supplemental, funding from radio and television advertisements. However, in some cases the balance between public funding and advertisements is the opposite – the Polish TVP broadcaster receives more funds from advertisements than from its TV tax.
