Yes, it's mandatory in Austria.

https://www.gis.at/english

I have to pay 24.48€ per month here in Salzburg. Salzburg is one of the more expensive states, Vorarlberg is the cheapest with 19.78€

Additionally, I have to pay about 12€ a month for my cable TV and 29€ for my fast cable Internet.

How much do you pay ?

No (unless they're Bafög-berechtigt), but the burden of proof is on them to prove I (assuming I exist) owe them anything... Smiley

The Austrian "GIStapo" knows how to get their money:

Until a year ago, every household with a TV or so had to pay.

Now, the law was amended and it says: "Every household that is able to receive a DVB-T signal has to pay the fee".

Which means - because 99.7% of the Austrian area is covered with DVB-T towers - not 99% of all households have to pay now, but 99.99% !!!

Because 99.99% of Austrians have either A) some sort of TV/Laptop or other TV-receiving thing in their household, or B) are living in an area where they can "potentially receive" a DVB-T signal with a DVB-T USB-Stick ...

No, but occasionally catching two minutes of Today Tonight is taxing enough.

The license fee is £145 a year, or £12.13 per month, with everyone who has a tv which isn't just using it for gaming expected to pay it. On the Gestapo line, for years there have been adverts not dissimilar to this or this (hardly contemporary, but only examples I can find on Youtube), but after receiving criticism and creating resentment it seems this year they've decided to change tack.

How that passes as "current affairs" bewilders me!

Australia used to have a TV licence, but it was abolished in 1973 because it wasn't cost effective.
