The new ZBC radio and tv licence fees were published in the Government Gazette last Friday and have been approved by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services.

These new price hikes come at a time when Zimbabweans are locked down because of the pandemic and aren’t earning enough to keep afloat. To make matters worse the licence fees will be reviewed twice “to move in tandem with economic trends”.

One thought on “ZBC increases prices for TV and radio licences

  1. Is there anyone actually paying the ZBC licences for their TV’s and radios? With the exception of vehicle radio licenses due to a police officer nearby, I am yet to see anyone pay for their licenses religously since 2014.
