What TV can I get with the basic TV license?

Hello - after quite a few years in Switzerland I finally bought a TV.

I plan to use it mainly for DVD's and streaming.

But I have had to buy the TV license, so may as well set myself up for terrestrial TV.

I know it is a really dumb question, but what can I receive and how can I receive it?

Do I just stick a coaxial cable into the wall?

I am a UPC cablecom customer, could I get a box to get the TV channels included in the TV license (without paying any more)

TV license covers everything you can receive, there is no list of channels.

I think what i am trying to say is:

What can I get for no additional cost?
How do I practically get it? Do I just use a coaxial cable? If it is delivered via UPCcablecom do I get a box?

This is what you'd get for free with UPC Cablecom.

Sorry, no idea.

We have no TV, as don't need one, but still pay the Billag licence - do a search in the upper right hand corner of your screen - might help
