UPC Cablecom free DigiCard offer

Seen yesterday at the Geneva UPC shop: if you sign up for a DigiCard Classic TV or DigiCard Comfort TV, the card (official price 99.-) is free. No activation fee (usually 49.-) is charged either.

This offer is not available online. I simulated a purchase and both the card and the activation had their regular prices.

I don't know if this promotion is available across all of Switzerland.

Re: UPC Cablecom free DigiCard offer

Probably doesn't apply, though, if you already have a package and digicard, and want a second one to replace a media box, because a new TV has a CI+ slot.

Ah, well.

Re: UPC Cablecom free DigiCard offer

We got the free DigiCard, in Interdiscount from a stand. They let us have the card for free even though we have an existing contract and cable box for an additional 10 CHF a month.

Now just to figure out how to get the cable connection to the back room.

Would've been great if they have on of my favorite channels though: Discovery and NatGeo in English. But I digress...

Re: UPC Cablecom free DigiCard offer

The Cablecom salesman at Mediamarkt Sihlcity (Zurich) offers the same.
I signed up with him for the following:

- TV Comfort with free digicard
- Free phone
- 50 Mbit internet

CHF 70 / month, no registration fee (CHF 49).

The same salesman told me these channels have English as the second audio channel. Not sure if true, although he seemed convinced.

We have the comfort package. It depends on the program. Discovery is almost entirely in German. Nat Geo HD has some offerings in English but not all.

Now available also online:

www.upc-cablecom.ch/fr/television/dtv-digicard/

Note the "free DigiCard" banner appears only on the French version of the website. Probably only a programming error.

The note "free card" is on both the French and Italian pages but not the German nor the English pages!
