Four out of ten think they get little in return for license money

41 percent of the population believe that they get little in return for the NRK news  license, according to a new survey.

The survey is done by Ipsos for newspaper Dagbladet and 930 participants have been asked the question “do you think that you are getting a lot, enough or little for the licensing money you / your household pay to NRK?”.

40 percent responded that they get enough for the license, while 16 percent think they are getting a lot. 3 percent responded “do not know” or that they do not pay the license.
Broadcasting Chief Thor Gjermund Eriksen is not worried about NRK’s position.

– I would like to see that the proportion who believe they are getting good value is higher, but that 56 percent believe they get enough or a lot value is not bad. People have very high expectations for NRK, so “enough” is also a good answer, he says.

    Nobody should be forced to pay a TV licence. Those who believe that it is good value for money should pay voluntary subscriptions and the rest should not have to pay.
    Forcing people to pay for TV is a very outdated and primitive way of funding TV.

    Competition improves quality. That is all there is to it; you can’t deny that simple fact. As long as NRK has little or no competition, why would they improve?
