In January 2024, more than four million Austrian households and companies will be able to collect really large sums of money through a mandatory tax, one department of the embattled broadcaster is organizing a fine party for itself – the fee the payer can afford – ” Fund the climate protection celebration of the “Mother Earth” initiative.
So a few thousand euros more are flowing into the ORF party program, even though independent media like eXXpress are sharply critical of the underfunding and excessive over-funding of the TV fee-based broadcaster, which will receive 789 million euros annually in the future. Week.
