free TV programs

As I wrote in another post, I'm considering buying a TV+internet+phone offer.

Is there a list of the programs I can see without such an offer, i.e. for free just with my antenna?

I'm still without a TV and not knowing anything about number/quality of freely avaiable tv programs it's difficult to decide if I really "need" to spend 60+ CHF for this combo offer, or just +-30 for a flat internet connection alone..

Thanks
AC

If you have a internet connection, you can watch online here:
www.zattoo.ch

All the English channels are there too for anyone to watch WITHOUT a subscription

Re: free TV programs

thanks a lot.
My wife is german, and she would like to look also at swiss/german channels. Is there any free channel I can receive without a "combo" package?
Also, how is the quality (number of interruptions per minute / frame rate / resolution) in zattoo? (it's blocked here in my office..)

Re: free TV programs

My ex-Swiss boyfriend turned me onto this site, because of all the English language channels. You can look at all the Swiss channels (German, French or Italian). It looks as though there are many German channels! You can also apparently record shows.

The quality is ok. However, you can pay for a subscription which gives you a better quality! Maybe HD? I am certain it is much cheaper than say Cablecom! I am not sure of the price per month, because I use the free version on my iPhone & computer.
