Swisscom TV to massively expand HD offering and offer additional language packages

Berne, 21 October 2010

Swisscom will simultaneously introduce three new features for television in HD quality. The range of channels is to be expanded to include two new free HD channels. Customers will also be able to choose from two HD packages, each offering nine top channels for only CHF 9 per month. Football fans too can enjoy exclusive HD coverage on Swisscom TV: many live sporting events are now available in HD quality. And now all Swisscom TV basic customers with an HD-compatible television can benefit from these chargeable HD offerings. The new Portuguese, Turkish and Serbian language packages will particularly appeal to foreign customers.

Swisscom TV already guarantees all-round entertainment with over 150 channels, more than 2,000 live sporting events from Teleclub and over 1,000 films at the touch of a button. From November, Swisscom will offer its customers an expanded basic offering as well as new supplementary packages that will allow them to individualise their viewing even more.

From 6 November, football fans will be able to enjoy live sporting events in HD quality. This season, over 300 top-class football matches will be transmitted in HD exclusively on Swisscom TV, a figure that is set to rise to 500 next season. Games from the Axpo Super League, Serie A, the Spanish La Liga and the Portuguese Liga Zon Sagres will be broadcast in high-definition quality. Football can now be enjoyed in HD quality for just CHF 2.50 per game, the same price as for standard quality. Swisscom TV customers with a Teleclub Sport subscription will also benefit from eight additional HD sports channels at no extra cost.


New HD channels and attractive HD programme packages

From 15 November, Swisscom will expand its current HD basic offering with the addition of Arte D HD and France 2 HD, which is particularly popular among French-speaking customers. This means that Swisscom TV plus customers will benefit from a total of ten free HD channels. Swisscom TV customers with an HD-compatible television can individualise their viewing even more with HD programme packages: the "HD Deutsch+" and "HD Français+" offerings each include nine attractive HD channels and can even be ordered directly via the TV for only CHF 9 per month each.
