TV Guide

The TV Guide is an electronic programme guide in your TV. This function shows you the programmes of all channels and your scheduled recordings for the next few days.


The TV Guide is available in all Swisscom TV-Boxes. If you have a UHD-enabled TV-Box, you can with your remote also browse the TV Guide via the speech recognition function in addition to the manual search.

Depending on the channel, you will need to change the picture quality from HD to SD if you want to use Teletext. To do this, press the "Option" button on the Swisscom TV remote control. Once you have switched to SD quality, Teletext will be available again.
