Tell your landlord he's in direct violation of Swiss civil rights laws which allows residents to be able to receive television programing in their own language.

See: SR 784.40 Art. 66

Satellite dishes can however be banned from buildings that are historically protected or the programs in question are readily available by local providers (i.e. cable TV).

Of course then the landlord is free to give notice.

Re: recieving indian transmission without a satellite

hi, thanks for the replies..well i dont think so the building i live in is historically protected..and the programs are also not covered by any other channel provider...we have to have dish to get the transmission...we spent alot of money on this dish issue..first we got it fixed a little outside of our balcony, then we were asked to change the location and then we got it fixed on the balcony roof..we got a notice to leave the building insteadso we just had to take it off altogether..i wonder if the building is not historically protected or any such issue like that...then y the landlord has given us the notice???i mean we enjoyed the prvevilige of the dish antennae for some two years and then sddenly the notice????is it normal??

Re: recieving indian transmission without a satellite

As I understand it, you can be prevented from fixing a dish to the building (or directly to the balcony) but you are able to have a free-standing stand on your balcony.

Question: Can I install as a tenant for a satellite dish?

Yes having to in Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) enshrined freedom of information tenants have a right to the TV via a satellite dish. Lease clauses which prohibit the installation of a satellite dish, are therefore invalid.

An exception is a maximum, where building codes that protect public townscape. It is clear that tenants when installing a satellite dish must where possible take on the appearance of the house into consideration.

Who has a balcony, must place the bowl there and they can not simply screw on the facade. The lessor may not object in principle but against the fact that the satellite dish towers over the balcony railing and visible.

Re: recieving indian transmission without a satellite

Assuming you have a good DSL/Cable connection (at least 2MB), you should be able to get an IPTV receiver that will give you what you're looking for. A little googling about comes up with this company, but I'm sure there are many others.
