UPC English language TV Channels

Hi


I came to Switzerland nearly twenty years ago and when I first arrived in 1997 the only TV entertainment I could watch was I believe one BBC channel.


Since that time I had to get a version of SKY Satellite channels which has been great over the years, especially for keeping up to date with my favorite program "Eastenders".



Over the years UPC although has had some issues with connectivity etc has increased the total number of pure English language channels considerably to about 14 which is nearly as good as SKY and when they do the merger with Swiss-com later this year, I am hoping that they may consider adding a few more.


If this does happen I can at last stop paying for SKY as well.


If some of you wondering why I watch so much TV is that I am no longer young anymore and have health problems which means I cannot do so much as before like: Hiking, Ski-ing, Cycling etc etc in the outdoors.


Although before Covid19 I was going quite regularly to fitness center
and I no longer am working, fully retired.

Was there a question in your post? I don't see any.

Anyway, UPC is merging with Sunrise not Swisscom.
