The Acting Director-General of Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, Augustin Yamson has declared that GBC will soon re-introduce the payment of the TV Licence fee to enable the Corporation concentrate more on Public Service Broadcasting and also improve content.
Mr. Yamson made this known when Executives of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) paid a visit to the management of GBC to show appreciation for GBC’s assistance during the launch of the GJA’s 70 anniversary.
GBC officially reintroduced the collection of the TV Licence fees in 2015 after years of putting it on hold due to non-payments.
While domestic TV users are to pay between GH¢36 and GH¢60 for one or more TV sets in the same house every year, TV set repairers and sales outlets are to pay an annual sum of between GHc60 to GHc240.
For commercial TV operators, they are to pay GHc36 per annum for each TV set.
