Reduction in the purchase price of TVs and decoders suitable for the reception of television programs with the new transmission standards
How the Bonus works
The bonus consists in a reduction in the purchase price of TVs and decoders suitable for the reception of television programs with the new transmission standards (DVBT-2 / HEVC) which will be implemented from 2022, as well as for the purchase of decoders for satellite reception.
The reduction of purchase price may amount to maximum EUR 50.
The reduction of purchase price will be applied from December 18, 2019 until December 31, 2022 or up to the exhaustion of the allocated resources.
The bonus will benefit households that are residents of the Italian territory and that have a total annual income of up to € 20,000, according to the ISEE (indicator of equivalent economic situation).
The total budget allocated for the 2019-2022 period is about 150 million Euros.
HOW CITIZENS CAN ACCESS THE BONUS
The bonus will be issued as a discount applied by the seller on the price of the purchased product. In order to get the discount, citizens have to submit to the seller a request to buy a TV or a decoder benefiting from the bonus. To this end, they must declare that they are resident in Italy and belong to an ISEE family unit that does not exceed € 20,000, and that other members of the same household have not already received the bonus. The data collected will be processed in compliance with the privacy legislation (EU Regulation 2016/679 and Legislative Decree 196/2003 and amendments).
To verify that a TV or a decoder are among the products for which it is possible to take advantage of the bonus, a list of suitable products is available to the public at https://bonustv-decoder.mise.gov.it/prodotti_idonei.
