What do you get for 5 bucks? That's about half a euro... Less than a dollar...

Well, in Sweden you get quite a lot. 
Tv and radio free from commercials and commercial interest. 
In comparison, that really should be no biggie. 

Over the years I wrote and directed about 70 infomercials for the Swedish Public Service with the task of in some way getting people to see the necessity and benefits from such a service... and such a fee. 
Such a small fee.
