Conditions eased for private regional television and cable networks

Bern, 15.06.2012 - The Federal Council has eased the conditions on private TV stations receiving support through fee splitting and changed the relationship between fees and equity financing.

At the same time the Federal Council is phasing out the obligation to transmit TV programme services in analogue form on cable networks.
