The Performers' Rights Office Association (EJI) paid HUF 543 million in royalties to more than 11,000 performers, 95% of them Hungarian, after their productions were replayed on television over the course of the past year, according to Világgazdaság.

EJI announced that it concluded the distribution of royalties originally planned for the end of September, five weeks before the end of the deadline.

In the distribution of royalties, it processed the data of nearly 7,000 different programs.

The total broadcast time of the programs exceeded 470,000 minutes or 327 days. As a result of the distribution of royalties, the royalties of 73 performers exceeded HUF 1 million.

The combined remuneration of the ten highest-paid performers is close to HUF 70 mln, while the average amount of royalties paid is HUF 50,000.
