Radio and TV fee

The radio and TV fee funds the public service TV and radio channels of Sveriges Television (SVT), Sveriges Radio and Sveriges Utbildningsradio (Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company, UR).

Thanks to the radio and TV fee, the public service companies are able to broadcast interesting, good, fun, serious, long, short, exciting or important programs, independent from political and commercial influence.

The radio and TV fee is 2 400 SEK per year, or 200 SEK per month (from January 1st 2018).
