Vision, mission and values


Our audio-visual public service is an integral part and reflection of Swiss reality. Our channels are distinctive and successfully hold their own against international competition. We recognise modified usage patterns in good time and are open to technical innovation. Our services set quality standards and make an essential contribution to social cohesion in Switzerland.


We inform, entertain and contribute to education and cultural development. We encourage democratic opinion-forming, social orientation and cultural identity. We broadcast equivalent channels on equal terms in the four language regions for our audience. By taking into account the demands of majorities and minorities, we promote mutual understanding and solidarity.
