Oh Look,
Swedish state radio spent 2.7 million kronor on a "party" - and now they have been fined an additional 200 000 Swedish Kronor for not getting enough quotes.

So after court costs etc, this party they held will have cost over 3 million kronor.

Good to know where TV license money is being spent.

TV4 Group is a private company funded by advertising revenue. It is however the only commercial channel to be based in Sweden so end up paying more fees to the Swedish government that the other commercial channels that are owned and broadcast from outside of Sweden. They are as entitled to their high profits as any other Swedish company. They will however pay more tax to the government.

Take a tip and check out the FACTS before you post crap, or is it a a matter of not letting the truth get in the way of yet another false anti-Sweden post

TV4 is a company based in Sweden and Broadcast from Sweden.
The TV fee covers a wide array of over heads relating to broadcasts and administrations.

So the TV fee that is paid does in fact fund the channel in regards to its included under the umbrella which the state has to govern.

Whereas channels like Kanal 5 and TV3 are broadcast from outside of Sweden and not covered by such.

They pay to broadcast in Sweden, Only SVT and SR are funded by the licence fee as they do not have any advertising revenue. Now, as usual, when found out in false claims, your write a lot of crap to try and prove your point.

Guess what, another big failure yet again
