Having looked it up on Wiki, it's interesting that the Greek television licence is paid through electric bills. For each account (whether business premises or offices) the contribution is €51.60. Doesn't seem a lot but in 2006 the revenue was €262.6M......So, have the Greeks stopped paying their electric bills?

Oh the government have kindly suspended the licence payments as there is no official TV broadcast to watch....

No no no, think how governments work.....Suspend or cancel the service, but keep collecting...... Maybe introduce a cancellation charge too :-hide

Yes, I read that on the BBC News site today too and thought it was quite a clever way of collecting the fee.

In Finland this year they stopped the traditional licence scheme (which was like in the UK) and now collect the fee via income tax instead. Works out cheaper for a single person but more expensive if you have more than one tax payer in the building... oh and you have to pay it even if you don't have a TV now.

Anyway, a sad day for Greek broadcasting.

There are not everything quality.you probably are not greek or speaking greek (but then in English there are thousands greek words so you are speaking in your ignorance greek)and greek diaspora is all over world.they want only to be in touch with the country FREE OF CHARGE

Now now. This is a discussion thread about the situation ERT has found itself in through no fault of their own. Its not a place to attack Greece or the ERT transmission standards

Indeed, lets not stray down the political reasons either.....Be hopeful it can be temporary and maybe back on air in the future.
