THE GOVERNMENT agreed on June 19 to raise television and radio licence fees by 25 percent. Each household will now pay Sk100 (€2.40) per month for a television licence and Sk40 (€0.96) for a radio licence. In the past, pensioners had been exempt but will now have to pay 50 percent of the fees.
The government expects to raise a total of Sk210 million (€5.04 million) per month with the new fees.
