Remote programming of Bluewin TV 300 via mobile phone

19 October 2005

Swisscom Fixnet has combined television and mobile phones: the electronic TV guide for Bluewin TV 300 can now also be accessed via your mobile. The Bluewin TV 300 hard disk recorder with up to 200 hours recording time can thus be programmed easily while on the move. The new service is available to all Bluewin TV 300 customers, regardless of whether they have a Swisscom Mobile subscription or are customers of other providers.

Bluewin TV 300 customers can now call up the electronic programme guide on their mobile, search for programmes and programme their favourite shows easily via their mobile phone. To use the remote programming service, Bluewin TV 300 customers must set up their personal account on the website. Swisscom Mobile customers who access the website via the Vodafone live! platform on their mobile will be identified automatically. Customers of other mobile providers can access the login page via the WAP link and register for access to their personal profile.

Targeted search and programming
Individual programmes can be located through either a full-text search or a search by date, genre, time, broadcaster, etc. Detailed information and a small picture can be displayed for each programme. Aside from the normal costs of using your mobile, there is no additional charge for using the mobile TV guide or for programming Bluewin TV 300 remotely.

Programme information is provided and updated by our partner tvtv services, which is also responsible for operating the mobile application.

Swisscom Fixnet offers Bluewin TV 300 at an attractive rental price of CHF 24.90 per month. With its digital hard disk recorder, Bluewin TV 300 can record up to around 200 hours of TV programming. It is compatible with all cable television sockets, which means that no additional Internet connection is required.
