TV-Gebühren in the Nebenkosten

Hello,

I wonder if I need to pay billag. Looks like I already have tv costs included looks like. Billag never contacted me.

Basically when I receive the resume of all nebenkosten of my building, TV-Gebühren is accounted, has this anything to do with billag?

Yes, Billag fees are payable and separate from connections costs ( search the forum for Billag for many threads on this ).

If you owned a TV, radio, PC etc., you are liable to pay Billag fees. Their website has registration information.

Without seeing your rental contract it is difficult to give a precise answer but I believe the tv costs in your rental contract are for the basic Cablecom connection. This has nothing to do with Billag which you must pay directly.

Correction: the connection costs for his local cable TV operator

With around 300 cable TV network operators in this country, one must not assume that they are all called "cablecom"

Except the question was posted by someone on Aargau and there is a very good chance it is Cablecom.

There are 22 cable TV operators in canton Aargau.

So there is a 1 in 22 chance, or about 5%, that the OP uses cablecom.

No, there is not cablecom in my apartment.
I have a swisscom abonament and I pay such thing apart.

My TV payment from the invoice is right 300 CHF.
I will ask my renter company.

Best to clarify with them if the Billag fees are included or not.
