Swiss govt approves new 4-year concession for public broadcaster

Thursday 30 August 2018 | 16:45 CET | News
The Swiss Federal Council has approved a new concession for the national public broadcaster SRG SSR, for the period 2019-22. The new agreement strengthens the requirement for the public broadcaster to differentiate its offer from commercial channels, while also calling on the group to cooperate with commercial parties on coverage of major events such as sports and entertainment. In addition, the concession authorises the shutdown of the DVB-T network by the end of 2019, due to limited users.
