Deregister media licence

Take a look at this site before you deregister your media licence. It says what you need to know about deregistering.

You may only deregister your licence if you no longer have any appliances subject to the media licence or if you move in with another licence holder, whom you are covered by.

Moving in with another licence holder

You may deregister your licence, if you move in with your spouse, partner or your parents and they already pay a licence.

You are not covered by a roommate, a friend or by your siblings.

Please note that it is not possible to pay your licence through the rent (Executive Order on Media Licence Fees, §5).

Deregister your media licence:

I am moving in with another licence holder

You need your NemID to deregister, and you will now be transferred to e-Boks.

No appliances subject to the media licence

You may deregister your licence if you no longer have any appliances subject to the media licence:

  • TV

  • Computer with internet access

  • Mobile phone with internet access

  • Tablet or any other appliance with access to the internet.

If you have any of the above appliances you may not cancel your licence.

You must register for a media licence regardless of which channels you watch and which websites you visit and regardless of whether you own, lease or borrow the appliance (Executive Order on Media Licence Fees, §1 and §3)

Deregister your media licence:

I no longer have TV, computer, mobile phone etc.

You need your NemID to deregister, and you will now be transferred to e-Boks.

Moving abroad

When the Danish National Register has been notified you are leaving Denmark the licence will be deregistered automatically. This is also the case if you move to Greenland or the Faroe Islands.

Because the licence is deregistered automatically you only have to contact the Danish National Register to change your address.

If there is a credit balance the amount will automatically be transferred to your Easy Account.

Please note that you cannot cancel your licence for a time period shorter than 3 months (Executive Order on Media Licence Fees, §4) If your stay abroad is shorter than 3 months you licence will automatically be for the full period.

Moving to a retirement home

The media licence automatically moves with the licence holder.

If you are taking your appliances with you to the retirement home, you must remain registered. You may only deregister the licence if you do not bring any appliances to your new address.

If you have a spouse or a partner in a marriage-like relationship, who will remain at your previous address, then you will both continue to be covered by the one licence. In this case, you should not deregister your licence, but register it to your spouse or partner’s name. You may do this by writing us or by calling us at 70 20 13 13.

Licence holder is deceased

It is not necessary to deregister the licence if the licence holder is deceased.

DR Licence will be informed by the Danish National Register and the licence will be deregistered automatically.

If there is a credit balance the amount will automatically be transferred the licence holder’s Easy Account. However, amounts of less than DKK 50 are not refunded (Executive Order on Media Licence Fees, §14 – (2)).

When you move to another address

Your licence moves with you automatically, when you change your address at the Danish National Register. If you still have to pay a licence at your new address, then you do not have to make any changes.

Can you pay the licence through your rent?

It is not possible to pay the licence through your rent. The media licence is yours personally and is connected to your identification number (CPR-nummer), and you are not covered by a media licence registered to your landlord.

Who keeps the media licence when you break up?

If you and your partner or spouse move to separate addresses, please determine who is registered as the licence holder. The name of the licence holder will appear on your latest invoice or on the bank statement (betalingsoversigt). You are always welcome to contact us if you have questions.

A licence is registered to one person and automatically moves with the registrant when the address is changed.

Please note – if the licence is paid through Direct Debit (Betalingsservice)

If the licence was originally registered to one person and the invoices were paid through Betalingsservice from another persons’ account, payment will continue automatically, until it is cancelled through the bank.
