? for those of you who watch TV: Is SRF commercial free?

If not, what the hell am I going to be forced to pay for now? Subsidizing SRF's advertising income?

This law is complete bullshit. You could go on all day about 'it's what the people decided democratically' - true, but what a reflection of the people's mentality.
I am sorry, but how many foreigners in your home country demand free TV because they don't speak English?

The financial problems here are made worse because Switzerland has to supply programmes in 3 languages, and has a very small population. New York, London and Paris all have larger populations than Switzerland, but they only have to supply single language programmes. Advertising rates are cheaper there too, as the target population is very much larger.
