Planning budget will help to identify wasteful expenditures, adapt financial situation changes quickly, and achieve financial goals. The reliability based budgeting has a great importance for broadcasting industry. In this study, several kinds of failure modes in TV broadcasting system have been detected based on recorded data. The risk priority number is used, for prioritizing the risks that are related to the reliability. We presented a multi-criteria decision making by analytic hierarchy process that has been used for prioritizing the proposed improvement options subject to budget requirement. The results indicate that human factor has more importance in the reliability of the system of TV broadcast that can be improved by education.
