RT urges Irish government to allow licence fee increase

Andy Sennitt



Irish households face the prospect of paying more for their TV licence to help offset potential losses of 68 million at RT. The broadcaster also wants a crackdown on the estimated 14% of households who do not pay the licence fee, describing the percentage of defaulters as high by international standards. RT has urged the Government to allow it increase the licence fee from 160, which would be the first increase in three years.

The company said that while it achieved a break-even result last year, it anticipated a 68m shortfall this year - a 15% reduction in income. Despite the economic downturn, revenue at RT remained static at 441m. Overall, RTɒs operating costs rose by 7% to 460.5m last year, although it achieved a break-even position through a number of cost-cutting measures. RT Director-General Cathal Goan said the decision taken to put on hold plans to launch a TV channel for Irish people living abroad would continue to be reviewed.
