Teleclub-doing my head in

OK it's time for my first rant.

I've been a client of Teleclub for 4-5 years. Mostly because of the english football. A couple of years ago I could expect to see 3 games on the Saturday, and two on Sunday and whatever games are played during the week. In the past 2 years Teleclub have been busy buying whatever rights are available. Swiss Football, Ice hockey, Portuguese and French football....... Now I'm lucky if I get two games a week of English football.

Now in my opinion English and German football should be given priority. Every paying customer I know have it because of these.

Now I understand that Swiss football and Ice hockey gets priority but I would argue most who want to watch the games will be at the games but especially this year english games have been repeatedly ignored starts missed due to stupid extreme sports, tennis and golf magazines or 2. Bundesliga.

Tonight is a perfect example. There a 3 live events. There are 3 sporting channels on Teleclub so the situation is clear I thought but no. They're showing Chelsea live, conference of the 3 games on the other and art on ice, yes, art on ice on the third. Because of bloody art on Ice I'm again relaying on a dodgy internet link to watch Liverpool and for this I pay Fr60 a month! I've quit them last month and made the reasons why clear.
I refuse to believe that there is a bigger market for Art on ice or 2. Bundesliga than live permiership football and anyway I feel live sports should always be giving priority over highlight packages.

Now before anyone suggests Swisscom TV Yes I know I could then see more of the games but before I give them my hard earned cash and switch everything to Swisscom. I expect to receive HDTV and not the 2nd class service which is currently available in my region but thats a topic for another rant...........

Re: Teleclub-doing my head in

This is the reason why I switched to Satelite. Fedup of waiting for the icehockey overtime to be over before they switch to EPL. It is still Teleclub, but you only pay Fr.29 for the sports channel without having to buy all the other unnecessary stuff. And with more than 10 sports channels available, most of the EPL games are shown.

However, there is a big problem... you can only get the "sports channel only" deal until the end of January 2011 (and keep it until Dec2011). They are changing their packages and from then on you need to get a package with all the other channels - minimum cost is Fr.45.

Yep I'd love to get satelite but then it would be Sky UK but I'm not allowed to install a satellite on the building and my balcony faces north west! I might inform myself about a Dreambox though

Just wondering if you know that when they changed their packages, did they get rid of the satellite version? When I go on their website it looks like you can only get it through Swisscom or Cablecom. And the real bummer is that I believe where we will be moving we are serviced by cablecom and you can't get the full program with them through Teleclub like you can with Swisscom (all the Bundesliga games, the Formula 1 with multiple channels)

We had sky in Germany and I am wondering if we should just keep our subscription and bring the box over and set up the satellite (would that work). I think we could get the basic sky plus Bundesliga for 25/month and then I think HD is 5 extra

Anyhow, I am trying to figure out if I can live without seeing my Bundesliga and other Sky (germany) programs/channels we got used to. Pathetic, I know, but change can hard

Thanks for your help!
