Swedish Public broadcaster Sveriges Television (SVT) wants to raise the
terrestrial license fee with around £ 2 a year beginning 1998. According
to SVT this increase is necessary to keep a positive balance on the
broadcasting account. This is first of all an effect of the cut down of
11 percent in 1995 but the increasing number of regional produced
broadcasts has also had an effect on the economy.

Coca-Cola has decided to drop the commercials in TV 2 Norge. TV 2 will
therefor miss around £ 2,5 million. Coca-Cola will instead be
advertising in TV Norge and Radio 1. This has not been confirmed by TV 2
since the don“t make speeches about their relations with the customers.

The new commercial Radio 2 from Denmark can now be heard in stereo via
transponder 63X which are used by BBC Prime on Intelsat 707. Radio 2 is
owned by Teledanmark and TV2.
The channel is also available in MPEG 2 on 11,592 H.
