SRG is once again facing difficult times.

The SRG has often been under fire in the past. Too left-leaning, too close to the state, not critical enough. Attacks against the largest Swiss media company with its four niche channels SRF, RTS, RSI and RTR have intensified over the years, especially from the right. In 2018, the No-Billag initiative clearly failed at the ballot box, but now a new initiative is already in the starting blocks.

“200 francs are enough” – under this slogan, a right-wing committee presented a new popular initiative to curtail the SRG in March 2022. The aim of the initiative is to limit radio and television fees from CHF 335 per household and year to a maximum of CHF 200. Companies and commercial establishments are to be completely exempt from the SRG tax.
