Broadcasting Contribution FeesAs of January 2013, the revised Broadcasting Law was placed into effect replacing the old one. As a result, there is a significant change in the contribution obligation. As of January 2013, each household has to pay one basic contribution fee. The contribution is independent of the type and number of devices, as well as the reception capabilities. The fee is paid to the ARD ZDF German Radio Broadcasting Contribution Service.Futher information can be downloaded under: www.rundfunkbeitrag.de.
