ZBC reviews licence fees. Companies will have to pay $600 per quarter for car radio licences, up from $80, while businesses with television sets will have to pay $1 000. The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Holdings has reviewed listeners’ licence fees for both radio and television, in a development that will see motor vehicle radio licence fees pegged at $300 from $10 per quarter.
This is contained in a Statutory Instrument of a Government Gazette published yesterday by ZBC with the approval of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa in terms of the Broadcasting Services Act.
The new fee structure is expected to bring relief to the public broadcaster which a fortnight ago told Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services that service delivery was being hampered by low licence fees, which were reportedly last reviewed in 2009.
“A listener may pay any fee referred to in subsection (1) in Euros, British Pounds, South African Rand or Botswana Pula at the international cross rate of exchange of the currency in question for the Zimbabwean dollar, rounded downwards or upwards to the nearest multiple of 10,” reads the notice.
Those in rural areas will have to pay $25 per quarter for radio, while those in urban areas pay $50 per quarter.
