APRA AMCOS has broadcast licence agreements with all Commercial, National Subscription and Community Television Stations, and reproduction licences in place where required.
Stations pay fees monthly based on a percentage of the station’s gross advertising revenue in that month. The rate varies from 1% to 2.9%. This rate depends on the amount of registered works broadcast as a percentage of their on-air time.
Community non-commercial Radio Broadcasters include Iwi, Access and student radio. Our Community Radio Licences are for radio stations broadcasting on an AM/FM signal. If you are looking for information on online-only radio stations, head over to Online licences.
We offer a Permanent or Temporary licence to Community Radio Stations covering broadcast, reproduction and online use on an “opt-in” basis, so stations only pay for what they need.
