Do you think the licence fee is value for money?
Well, the director general of RTE certainly does and actually thinks it should be increased.
Dee Forbes has said the TV licence fee should be increased to €175.
The director general said the TV licence fee system is “fundamentally broken” and is preventing the station for long-term planning.
She said failure to reform the system means that those that pay the fee are now subsidising those that don’t.
The BBC for example doesn’t advertise but takes a fee from the general public. Many people in Britain think they get value for their money due to the quality programming that the BBC provides.
But do you think RTE provides the same quality?
Let’s take a look at what RTE has on offer today for example…..
Super Garden – Nationwide – Eco Eye – Fair City – Grandma’s Boy with Donal Skehan – Dundalk against Rosenburg in the Champions league qualifier
So do you think that’s good value for money?
Would you pay more for your TV licensee?
