tv Minister approves 6% hike in TV licence fees

Television licence fees will increase in September, the SABC has said.

“The annual fee for a domestic, business, dealer and lessor licence will increase by R15 from R250 to R265,” spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said today.

“This equals an increase of only R1.25 per month,” he said.

He said the communications minister had approved a 6% increase in TV licences with effect from September 1.

Concessionary TV licences – granted to those over 70 and to receivers of social grants from the state – would rise by R4 to R74 a year.

This was the fourth tariff increase the SABC has been granted in the past 14 years. The last one was in 2009.
