Radio and television fee

In principle, all Swiss households as well as businesses and collective households pay a fee for radio and television. A new feature is that the obligation to pay the fee is no longer dependent on whether equipment which makes it possible to receive radio or television programme services (radios or TV sets, smartphones, tablets or computers with internet access) is present.
