Any one heard of Tv provider Anschluss??

Hi
I picked up my keys for my new apartment in the canton of Zug yesterday and was advised that some TV channels where provided and paid for within my rent coverage, from a company called Anschluss?
When i google them they seem to only provide to Germany??
So questions are, anyone heard of this company operating in Switzerland?
Do they offer the same TV type channels as UPC or Swiss com, ie BBC, ITV etc etc, for an upgrade of course!
If i wanted to move to UPC, would this be possible or do i have to start paying an extra line rental fee or something stupid.
The owner of the building has Anschluss tv to all apartments at chf 25per month.
Help and information welcomed..

Anschluss means connection. It could be the connection fee.

Cable Anschluss Fee

Yup, anschluss is for the connection fee and soon you will get a nice "friendly" visit from the Billag people probably asking for more money... In Switzerland, you pay extra tax if you own a radio and/or a TV...

Depending on where in Zug you live you might have access to the

Otherwise you'll probably have access to:
Upc Cablecom

If the cable connection is already included in your rent, you will not have to pay a line rental etc. However, if you choose Swisscom TV you will need a telephone line (last I checked about 25.25 per month)

Cheers!

I would go visit Anschluss headquarters personally and explain the situation. They are located in the city of Ausfahrt, you can easily find roadsigns leading there from most major motorways.
