European TV quotas: the consequences for Switzerland

Switzerland's participation in the EU's MEDIA programmes is having repercussions on television in Switzerland: in the future, international and national broadcasters and broadcasters in the different regional languages will have to comply with minimum quotas of Swiss and European productions and productions made by independent producers.

The two Houses of Parliament have enshrined these obligations in the current Law on Radio and Television. A background paper informs you about the envisaged regulation in the Ordinance on Radio and Television.

The background paper is only available in german, french or italien.
