The Swiss Federal Council gave the green light for a consultation on the new draft Electronic Media Act (EMA). The text provides for the creation of an independent regulatory authority to ensure greater independence from the state. The new act also seeks to further ease the regulatory constraints on those media without a public service mandate. 

The EMA is planned to replace the current Radio and Television Act. Interested parties have until 15 October to submit their comments.

In the future, support for public service broadcasting will be extended to online offerings and will no longer be limited solely to radio and television. However, financial resources will only be allocated to online services forming part of the public service which feature audio and video content rather than purely text-based content.
