Annual TV and radio license fees in Denmark 2009-2019

Annual TV and radio license fees in Denmark from 2009 to 2019 (in DKK)

by Julia Stoll, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Annual TV and radio license fees in Denmark 2009-2019 From 2009 to 2018, the annual media license fee in Denmark increased to 2,527 Danish kroner. In 2019, the fee dropped and was at 1,927 Danish kroner. The reason for the decrease of the media license fee is that the Danish government decided to abolish it. In the future, public service should be financed through taxes. Therefore, the media license fee is gradually phased out for a transitional period of three years.
Distribution of the media license yields

The media license finances public service broadcasts in Denmark. DR (short for Danish Broadcasting Corporation) collects the entire media license fees on behalf of the Minister of Culture and receives the majority. The rest passes to, amongst others, TV2, radio24syv, local radio and TV broadcasters, as well as the public service fund. 20 percent of the fee revenue goes as VAT to the Danish government.

Who has to pay the media license fee?

Since 1925, it has been compulsory to pay a license to DR if you own a radio. Since then, the license payment obligation has been extended to television sets. In 2007, internet access was also subject to the media license.
