SRF 2-HEX

Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF) maintains its leadership in the tv market against competition from an increasing number of other stations. SRF's wide-ranging services include three television channels, an internet and a mobile platform, as well as teletext. SRF fulfils its arts remit to some extent through its partnership in 3sat. SRF ensures that services on all platforms complement each other and form a coherent whole.

  • SRF 1: a high-quality schedule of news and current affairs, light entertainment and arts, with a large proportion of in-house productions, reflects the complex reality of life in culturally diverse Switzerland.

  • SRF zwei: with a heavy emphasis on sport, feature films and series, the schedule is aimed more at a younger audience.

  • SRF info: this public-service station offers viewers time-shifted viewing with running repeats of the latest information-based formats - news, sport and the arts.
