RTE license fee increase

RTE is to get a license fee increase. I cant really complain about it since it is a surprisingly small €3 bringing the license fee to €158. As the press release points out with inflation running at 3.8% the increase could have been €6.

The extra license fee should bring give RTE an extra €2m in 2006 or almost €4m in a full year for investment in a couple of spare Pat Kennys, some acting lessons for the cast of Fair City, a new Eamon Dunphy, and there may even be change left over for digital TV (but don't bet on it).
