Recipients of Citizen’s Income must pay for cable TV themselves

Cable TV will become more expensive for many recipients of Citizen’s Income from July 1. Because landlords will no longer be able to charge the fees as ancillary costs, tenants will have to take care of a cable connection themselves and conclude their own contract. Citizen’s Income recipients will have to pay for it themselves. The employment agency Reutlingen confirmed at the request of tuenews INTERNATIONAL. Previously the job center had covered the costs for cable television as part of the accommodation costs if they were included in the ancillary costs.
There are no exceptions according to the employment agency. Nationwide, this affects more than five million people. However, it will be cheaper for those tenants who have previously paid cable fees as part of their ancillary costs but did not use the cable service at all.
Further information is available on the website of the consumer advice center Baden-Württemberg. There you can also find out which alternatives to the cable connection are available:
