Switzerland - Radio
If you are looking for a station in English, tune your radio to World Radio Switzerland which is the country's only English-language station and offers a range of programmes. Topics covered include business, sports, motoring, the arts and entertainment, food, and health.
You should be proactive in letting Billag know that you have equipment capable of receiving radio stations, otherwise you may be fined by OFCOM (G: BAKOM), the department responsible for communications in Switzerland. Do not assume that because you are paying for the licence your radio equipment is registered. Note that your internet connection is included in the definition of radio receiving equipment, as are smart phones.
In short, few expats will legally be able to do without the radio and television licence while in Switzerland.
