Still don't get the point of this "Fee"... everything is on-line now, the TV and Radio as we know it is disappearing, soon we will be paying Fees to Youtube...
Today I read in a decent paper that the government has rejected the "no-Billag initiative" by scrapping the Billag!

However they didn't want to scrap the fees, as they believe the Swiss national TV stations are important in keeping the country together: by reporting about those folks with the funny accents, across the Rösti ditch.

The TV & Radio fees are also used to finance local radio, which would probably disappear without funding (Remember WRS an English language station in Geneva?)
