Bonus tv without Isee

Compared to the old version of 50 euros, the figure can reach up to 100 euros (20% of the cost of the television set with a ceiling of 100 euros) and there is no need for any Isee certification, because it is an incentive for everyone. . There are three requirements for obtaining the concession which is valid until 31 December 2022 “unless the available funds are used up in advance”: being resident in Italy, the scrapping of an “obsolete” device and the attestation of payment of the Rai license fee. Obsolete equipment means a TV “purchased before December 22, 2018, as it is unable to receive HEVC Main 10 encoded broadcasts”.

HOW DOES IT WORK – Scrapping can take place by delivering the old appliance to the shopkeeper who will apply the discount, who will then take care of disposing of it in the correct way and in turn redeem the tax credit by offsetting. Or by taking the device to authorized landfills, together with a form «by which the end user certifies the transfer of the goods and self-certifies the ownership of the subscription to the broadcasting fee and the non-compliance of the device with the new DVBT-2 standards , as it was purchased prior to 22 December 2018 ». The same form, countersigned, together with the identity documents, must be delivered to the retailer who will apply a 20% discount on the final purchase price including VAT (up to a maximum of 100 euros). The seller will then enter all the information on the electronic platform made available for the Revenue Agency to confirm the presence of the requirements.

THE REQUESTS – A household bonus can be requested. The request must be made by the «holder of the electricity contract on which the subscription fee for the broadcasting service is charged» or by whoever pays the fee with the F24 model. Those over 75 who are exempt from the fee are also eligible for the bonus. The contribution can be combined with the old 50 euro bonus for the decoder, “the amount of which, without prejudice to the provisions of the aforementioned decree, with effect from the entry into force of this decree, is reduced to 30 euro, or to the lesser value equal to the selling price if lower “.

50 EURO BONUS WITH ISEE – If you don’t want to wait a few days (but it’s worth it) and in any case you don’t want to scrap your old TV (because with an external decoder it will work the same) you can access the 50 euro bonus. In this case, however, in addition to being resident in Italy, you need an ISEE that does not exceed 20,000 euros. The € 50 bonus can also be used just to buy an external decoder, and there are also cheaper ones on the market.

LO SWITCH – The transition to the new technology will take place in zones. It starts on 1 September 2021 (until the end of the year) in Valle d’Aosta, Piedmont, Lombardy, Trentino, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Emilia Romagna. From 1 January 2022 to 31 March 2022, it will be the turn of Liguria, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Campania and Sardinia. From 1 April 2022 to 20 June 2022 it will touch Sicily, Calabria, Puglia, Basilicata, Abruzzo, Molise, Marche. From the moment of the switch the transmission standard will pass from MPEG2 to MPEG4, which already allows you to see the channels in HD today. All those who have a TV that already allows the reception of the signal in high definition from number 500 onwards on the remote control will have no problem receiving the channels.

HE TESTS – The test to understand if your TV is compatible with the new Dvbt-2 technology is relatively simple. You have to tune into test channels 100 (Rai) or 200 (Mediaset): if the message Test HEVC Main10 appears, the TV is already suitable and does not need to be changed. If, on the other hand, the message channel not available appears, then the TV is too old. It is also possible that neither message appears on those channels; in which case we have to retune all programs.
According to an Auditel-Ipsos research, 9 million TVs are not compatible with the new technology in Italian homes.
