Japan: NHK to cut TV licence fees by 4.5%

A meeting of Japan public broadcaster NHK’s board has approved the lowering of its TV viewing licence fees.

The first stage reduction, of a 2 per cent cut next year, will not be seen by viewers because the Japanese government has increased its VAT consumption tax rises by 2 per cent from 8 per cent to 10 per cent. NHK’s target is to thus keep the licence fees constant in 2019.
