What is non-public TV?

Non-public TV is also known as private or commercial broadcasting and is financed either via advertising, sponsorships, or subscriptions. Some TV channels are funded through donations. In Denmark, private television became less popular according to the most recent data. While the daily time spent amounted to 86 minutes in 2010, the people spent on average only 53 minutes per day watching these non-public TV stations.

On the contrary, what is public TV?

Public broadcasting channels are owned by the government and are funded by receivers’ fees. In 2019, Danes had to pay an annual media license fee of 1,927 Danish kroner. In the future, it will be replaced by financing public broadcasting through taxes.
