Only one in three Poles are currently paying their national TV licence fee, according to data released by the country’s broadcasting regulator, the KRRiT.
According to the regulator, 65% of the country’s population don’t pay the licence fee, compared with around 5% in the UK and only 2% in Germany.
The funding of state broadcasting is politically contentious. The Civic Platform-led government previously moved to abolish the licence fee in favour of direct funding from government ministries, but the plan was vetoed by the late president, Lech Kaczynski.
