Analogue cable TV: free choice of channels for network operators

The obligation to broadcast certain television programme services (must-carry channels) in the analogue services on cable networks is being phased out. Because the vast majority of the Swiss population use digital services, the broadcasting obligation will be limited to digital services from 2015. The amended Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) Ordinance enters into force on 1 June 2013.
