Abstract:     
This paper examines distributional effects of services provided by the Irish public service broadcaster, RTE. Conditional probabilities of usage of, satisfaction with, willingness to pay for and perception of improvement of, RTE's broadcasting services are estimated. Flat licence fee funding appears to represent a transfer towards females, those living outside Dublin and those aged 35+. There is little support for a policy of redistribution whereby households with higher incomes would pay a higher licence fee.
