Swiss ministry organises consultation on SRG licence

Thursday 4 January 2018 | 11:56 CET | News
Swiss Department for Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (UVEK) has published the draft for a new licence for the public broadcaster SRG, under consultation until 12 April. The current licence will expire at the end of the year and the new licence will go into effect from the beginning of 2019 until the end of 2022. Should the new Act on Telecommunications not be adopted until the license expires, it will be extended. The procedure of the licence award will be halted if the so-called No Billag initiative is accepted.
