SVT hopes live online broadcasts will force PC-owners to pay license fee

Sweden's public broadcaster (SVT) is about to start making all its programmes available in real-time online, a project it is hoped will result in a massive increase in license fee payers.

Eva Hamilton, the head of Sweden's public broadcaster (SVT), told Sweden's Radio (SR) the logical consequence of SVT making all its content available online should be that the license fee no longer would be tied up to whether or not a household had a TV, but be extended to all PC-owners. Danish politicians have recently discussed similar measures to ease the financial woes of the country's public broadcaster.
