The broadcasting licence fee is a statutory public fee for those who have a television receiver in use. This licence fee is not affected by local signal conditions, the channels you have access to or the programmes you choose to view.
The main rule in the Regulations relating to television receivers is that a broadcasting licence fee must be paid for each receiver.
The Norwegian Parliament has determined that the broadcasting licence fee should accrue to the NRK who serve the role as the Norwegian public broadcaster. For 2017 the fee is NOK 2,867.70, including VAT at 10%.
The fee is due twice a year with a due date January 31st for the licence term 01.01. - 30.06., and with a due date July 31st for the licence term 01.07. - 31.12.
The reminder for the licence term 01.07.2017 - 31.12.2017 will be sent in the 35. and 36. week of 2017, to those who have failed to pay the broadcasting licence fee on time. The reminder is due for payment September 21st 2017.
