Re: Bye bye Billag [Welcome our new overlord Serafe]

A friend of mine hasn't gotten any letters from Serafe. After binning the first few letters from Billag, years ago, he hasn't heard anything since.

Hi folks
On our invoice it is written, jointly and severally liable with 2 of our neighbours names
Does it mean that I have to pay the full amount of my invoice or is it shared between the neighbours ?
Or it only means that if I dont pay they will go after my neighbours ?


But why my poor neighbours ?


Thanks
Tintin

If you live in premises separate from your neighbours (as is usual!), it's most probably a cock-up, probably by your local Gemeinde/commune from whom Serafe get their billing information. The best course of action is to call Serafe and give them the correct details. You will then receive your own invoice.

To make your point:
Mark the names and write "Nachbarn" (neighbours) on the bill, return the bill to Serafe (keep a copy of what you're sending).

As you no longer will have a bill they will solve the problem at an impressive speed

..and if you just pay the bill as it is, will they let all of you (including the neighbors) alone?

Re: Bye bye Billag [Welcome our new overlord Serafe]

Do you know if it's planned by SRF to close Serafe in the next years and start charging directly by Tax?


In my case I am opting out at the end of the year because I cancelled my internet contracts 3 months ago, I don't have TV, radio, tablet, computer or smarphone. And when I want to check something online I use my girlfriends laptop (it's by her) or at work in the pause.

I have to say that my life has changed dramatically without internet. I sleep much better and have more energy. I have started playing my piano again and I feel like more awake in my head. I cannot explain but it feels just great.

I hope it's not aproblem for Serafe having electronic keyboards (piano workstation) and a big HIFI equipment (no radio, no internet connectivity), isn't it?

Last question: Are Ebook-Readers allowed? It has wifi....

The SWISS were so dumb that they voted to continue paying for this shit. More money than sense the SWISS! They get off on giving their money away for senseless things!

That's why Swiss people don't matter paying +3x what a dentist in Germany costs and why Swiss people take so much drugs.... I know that this is not political correct but it's the truth.

No, as everybody has to pay.
Wrong! Many people are still exempt.

Re: Bye bye Billag [Welcome our new overlord Serafe]

Does anyone know did the switch away from Billag have anything to do with the Champions League coverage being cut from Tues & Weds to Weds only?
