Die Finanzierung des öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunks
AbstractGermany is characterised by a dualism between public and private broadcasting. Public broadcasting services, encompassing radio and television, are mainly financed by license fees. As a result of the revised Broadcasting Law, the former broadcasting fees were replaced on 1 January 2013 by a monthly broadcasting contribution paid by every household and company regardless of whether or when they use public broadcasting services. The new system resulted in higher fees for many people and a controversial public dispute. The author of this paper highlights some options to improve the current financing system.
