TV Guide

The TV Guide is Swisscom TV’s electronic TV listings guide. It is easy to use:

  • Open the TV Guide

    Go to the TV Guide button to launch the electronic listings guide.


    In the TV Guide, use the remote control to go up to 12 days forwards and up to 7 days back. Click OK to read the programme description, to start watching or to record.

  • Option

    Use the Option button to skip to the listings for a particular day, start the search function or change the way the TV Guide is displayed.



Use the Replay function to watch programmes and films broadcast in the previous seven days on your Swisscom TV. With Swisscom TV M and L, Replay is included in the subscription. Customers with Swisscom TV S can also add the Replay option for an additional CHF 5.–/mth. (You will be notified when you place your order if you need a newer TV-Box for this.) To use Replay, you need to activate the function the first time for all subscriptions, either on the TV, via the Swisscom TV app or on the web.

Note: The Replay function isn’t available if you are a business customer using TV Public.

How to use Replay

  1. To watch a previously broadcast programme, go to the TV Guide on your Swisscom TV remote control.
  2. Channels that allow previously broadcast programmes to be replayed are highlighted in white.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to go to the programme you want and select OK.
  4. Select “Watch” and confirm with OK. The selected programme is played back from the start.
  5. You can also record the programme. If you are on the programme you wish to record, you can do this by pressing the button with the red dot.



Use the record button on your remote control (short press) to record programmes and series or access your recordings list (long press).


In the “Recording” menu of your Swisscom TV-Box, you can:

  • Schedule recordings
  • Manage series recordings
  • Delete recordings
  • Archive recordings

The available memory capacity depends on your Swisscom TV basic package. Overview of all products.


The TV-Box (UHD) and Swisscom Box have a recycle bin. This allows you to restore recordings that may have been deleted accidentally. Recordings are permanently deleted after 30 days.


When you switch from Swisscom TV L to Swisscom TV M, you will lose up to 80% of recordings. When you switch from Swisscom TV L to Swisscom TV S: you will lose all recordings as no recording function is available.

Play content

Various apps allow you to access content such as wedding photos, holiday videos or your favourite music through Swisscom TV. Find out the options available with each type of Box.
