I heard that you can apply for an exemption from Billag if you don't watch Swiss TV. Is that correct?

Hi there,

You can currently apply from an exemption from Swiss TV and radio license fees (Billag) if you do not own a device capable of receiving radio or television (including Internet TV accounts).

From 2019, all households in Switzerland will be required to pay these fees regardless of whether or not they own devices capable of receiving radio or TV, with very few exceptions.

Best regards from Moneyguru
