Television – Cyprus and Other

No need to fear that letter in your post box of TV License Renewals, Fines or that dreaded knock on your door enquiring how many Television sets you have in your home and to prove the License for them. In Cyprus, there is no TV License fees. Yes, you read that correctly, NO TV LICENCE FEES, because the public broadcasting service is financed with a tax that is included in the electricity bills from the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC).
