Wilmaa IPTV services, any feedback?

I saw this while Googling alternatives to Cablecom... Wilmaa http://www.wilmaa.com/en/box/advantages

Basically it is IPTV for 29chf per month for the basic package

I notice they also have fiber upcoming.

Anyone used it, or have any feedback?

No-one got any experience with this?

EDIT - Ahh I see the box really has only just been released... http://www.pctipp.ch/news/kommunikat...eltlich-71006/

Re: Wilmaa IPTV services, any feedback?

It's been a few months, so I wondered if anyone has given this a shot?

Sadly I got a Cablecom renewal in the meantime, so didn't get chance...

Re: Wilmaa IPTV services, any feedback?

One I looked at and may consider as a replacement to Cc. is SwissTV

https://www.swisstv.ch/en/video-on-d...ss/what-is-vod

It's a VoD and TV channel provider, available via Smart TV app. (* already available on Samsung, LG, Philips, Toshiba), or set top box for one-off purchase of 128,00.

[I have a Samsung, so it's worth me considering]

Cost is 9,90 per month, but a year up front has to be paid (118,80), but a months free trial is offered and contract can be cancelled during that month.

https://www.swisstv.ch/en/subscripti.../choisir-offre.

Channel list isn't too extensive (scroll down on first link), but it appears to have everything I watch and can always be supplemented with Zattoo (also Smart TV app.), free or sub for better picture quality and no ads.

I, personally, would pay 85,00 p.a. for the sub, if it was one of primary viewing options; therefore SwissTV and Zattoo would together cost just over 200,00 p.a. - much cheaper than Cc.

...... although not so much offerings in HD, but as I only have a 40 incher, I could probably live with that.

Re: Wilmaa IPTV services, any feedback?

I don't really see the advantage. They're more expensive than Cablecom, while offering the same? Cablecom has fiber, Horizon GO, same channels, etc.

I would expect something better from a proper IPTV provider, e.g. sharp prices or international channels that no other provider offers.

Fiber? Cablecom is still on its own copper coaxial cable, which cost you CHF 29 each and every month. http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/en/get-ca...iption-charge/

You can save this (even when part of your Nebenkosten, it's the law) when you switch to real Fiber To The Home

Cablecom uses coaxial... and if you change your home to a real fiber connection then Cablecom will not work. I am switching to symmetrical Gigabit (1000/1000) fibre in June, so I apparently cannot use Cablecom.

Wilmaa or a similar service will be the next best thing, and at around 100chf per month I will get all my TV channels and way faster internet.

Sorry, I meant they most likely use fiber anywhere else (e.g. switches), not into people's homes.
I am currently on Swisscom fiber (which is 15 Mbit i.e. ridiculous for the price I pay), but am noticing no difference other than on my bills.
Hence why I cancelled and will be going back to Cablecom in about a week.

Wilmaa is not the next big thing. There are many IPTV "providers" that offer global channels in combination with e.g. a MAG250 box, for a lot less money.

So which provider offers you a Gbit up / down for CHF 70 (since Wilmaa will cost you about CHF 30)?

Can you share with us what provider are you going with? and also what speed you are going with, is that 100Mbit/s or 1000Mbit/s ?

Ignore my question, I assume you are planning to go with init7 Fiber7 product!
