Number of employees of SVT 2008-2018

In 2018, the Swedish public television and radio broadcaster Sveriges Television – abbreviated as SVT – employed 2,333 people. This was a growth of nearly 300 employees compared to 2010. During the past ten years, SVT reached its the highest personnel amount in 2008, at 2,370 people.

SVT – one of the leading television broadcasters

Sveriges Television belongs to the four main television broadcasters in Sweden. Based on the revenue, SVT was the second largest TV company after the advertised-financed MTG Nordic Entertainment in 2017. The other two leading broadcasting enterprises in the country include Discovery Networks, as well as TV4, that is owned by Bonnier Broadcasting.

How does SVT fund itself?

Until the end of 2018, Sweden’s population had to pay an annual license fee to receive public radio and television, such as Sverige Television’s channels. That year, the amount was 2,400 Swedish kronor per household. Since 2019, the public broadcasters Sveriges Television, the Swedish Educational Broadcasting Corporation, and Sveriges Radio get their funds through an individual fee charged through taxes.
