ORF Zentrum WienHugo-Portisch-Gasse 1
ORF is formally a foundation under public law and as such must fulfill a number of duties and mandates laid down in the ORF Act.
Being a public service radio and television company, ORF is not profit-oriented, and invests all revenue – two-thirds of which comes from radio- and TV-licence fees, the rest from advertising and other income – directly into the programs and services it provides to its ORF audiences.
The ORF’s main headquarters and studios are located in Vienna, and the company also operates regional studios in all nine Federal Provinces and maintains a worldwide network of correspondents who contribute to its varied range of programs in all three media.
