For what concerns radio and television, Sweden has passed from a state broadcasting corporation to three independent companies each responsible for a specific field: Sverige Radio AB is responsible for the radio programs, Sverige Television AB for the television programs and Sverige Utbildningsradio for educational radio and television programs. The language used in all the programs is Swedish or in the case of television programs is the original language of the program shown but with Swedish subtitles.


The TV system used in Sweden is PAL. American TV can be run with a transformer if the television is a multi system TV but US videos don't work on Swedish VCRs unless they have a switch to run ntsc format videos.

In Sweden there are not so many channels in fact you will automatically receive:
SVT1, and SVT2 which are government owned and subsidized channels; channel 4 and 4+, TV3, Kanal 5, ZTV and TV6 which are privately owned and commercially funded stations. Programs are listed in the back of all the newspapers included the free of charge ones.


There are four main stations P1, P2, P3 and P4 as well as a number of local stations.
