Billag information

Hi,
I have moved recently to Switzerland and have a question about billag. How do I apply for this? The website does let you register new devices but the web account is not available in English. Do they have a local office or can I apply via post office?

Click "EN" towards the top right corner to change to English.

Edit: Sorry, I see what you mean. The actual registration form is only French and German.

Re: Billag information

It does not take too much intelligence to fill in the registration form!

It's Billag, you expect them to use clear language? Their 'business model' is obfuscation. They do not use clear language.

My recommendation to the OP is to start with French and then use Google Chrome to auto-translate it. I speak French, but I unwillingly got shoved into the German side where the translations are flat-out wrong. The French side seems to translate correctly.

Re: Billag information

Billag is prepared to get emails for registration.

On the german version, click "Kontakt" in the top right corner to open the email form. Provide your email address, check "Anmelden", in "Mitteilung" give your address and what you need to register (radio only, or radio and tv), tell them you need conversation in english (or whichever language/s apply), perhaps a registration start date. Click "Senden" to submit. If they need any additional info they'll ask.
