This question already has an answer here:
Recently I've got a 385 Euro bill for Rundfunkbeiträge - it's a payment every German household should pay for public broadcasting. I was frustrated, however my coworkers told me that this is for almost two years and, well, I have no other option rather than just to put up with it, which I did. Now I've got bill 52 Euro for next three months and I've found that's is psychologically difficult for me to pay for something apart from taxes from that I don't even use.
My question would be - talking into account that this is not a tax - is there any legal way not to pay for public broadcasting.
