Who has to pay the radio and TV fee?

Every household and company that owns, rents or borrows a television receiver in Sweden has to pay a radio and TV fee.

According to 2a § of the Act on Financing of Radio and Television in the service of the public.

  • You must pay the radio and TV fee even if you don´t watch SVT's channels.
  • You must pay the radio and TV fee even if you are just using the TV to play games or watch movies.
  • You must pay the radio and TV fee even it you are using the TV as a computer screen.
  • You must pay the radio and TV fee even if you have bad reception.

A single radio and TV fee is payable for all receivers in one and the same household. The definition of a household includes a second home (holiday/weekend cottage), caravan or temporary accomodation elsewhere.

Students living away from home, registered as residents where they are studying, must pay a separate radio and TV fee.

Subtenants must also pay the radio and TV fee. If a TV receiver is included in the sublet, the person who has access to the TV receiver is required by law to register with Radiotjänst.
