When/on which channel can I watch Game of Thrones Season 4?

Does anyone know which channel will be showing the latest season of GoT in Switzerland? And when?

I've found the nifty little button which lets you turn off the German/French/Italian dubbing and listen in glorious English technicolor!

Re: When/on which channel can I watch Game of Thrones Season 4?

as far as I know - right now it is playing on Sky TV in Germany which is subscription based. In the past it has been shown on "free" TV on TNT Serie - but I can't find a start date for the 4th season.

Anyone else know?

edit: I saw on the Facebook page from TNT Serie the following:

Quote:
Staffel 4 von "Game of Thrones" ist voraussichlich ab September bei uns zu sehen. Sobald ein genauer Termin fest steht, geben wir ihn sofort bekannt.
So it looks like you have to wait until September...right now no start date has yet to be announced

Re: When/on which channel can I watch Game of Thrones Season 4?

On cable, I believe the only chance is if you subscribe to Canal+. Which is only available in Romandie...

On satellite, it's on Sky (UK Italy Germany).

Torrenting is still the best way to get it.
One day they will figure out that the only way to reduce piracy is to make the shows available to everyone at the same time.
Since it involves changes the way copyright is handled in different countries, chances are our we will be buried by the time something like that happens.

imo. torrent sites are easier. 5 mins to download and can watch anytime and in full 1080p resolution and the recording begins and ends at the right place.

with cable, you have to be there and watch it at a specific time (and maybe with adverts) or you have to go in and set it up to record, which is usually more hassle than downloading.

Sky Atlantic HD

which need a Teleclub Subscription
which needs Swisscom TV, Sunrise TV, or a Cable (upc cablecom, GGA Maur, Wasserwerke Zug, Stadtantenne Baar und Sasag Schaffhausen)

do you have a favorite site, or does it depend on the content you are looking for?

Re: When/on which channel can I watch Game of Thrones Season 4?

It won't be on (our regional) TV for quite a few months as the Original Show on the American HBO only just started two weeks ago and is only into the first two episodes which were aired.

So if you can't wait, you have the option to either download these freshly aired episodes as files or stream them directly via Internet sites.
A successful show like this is no hard job to find easily spread all over the net.

I still use Piratebay, it hasn't been blocked in Switzerland, unlike the UK, Germany, USA etc
Edit: and I use uTorrent as a client; small and easy to use.

I dl'ed Sunday's episode in less than a minute using the torrent from Piratebay, then settled down last night to watch in HD and no commercials. Bliss.

Kickass torrents, you will have to google their current url, they have to move from time to time.

You will need to install a library to download too. I use Vuze

I like KAT because, many of the shows have a link/filter that will display the downloads in episode order. Biggest like is no ads

Re: When/on which channel can I watch Game of Thrones Season 4?

Torrent it is then! To be fair, that's how I've watched the entire series so far, but just wanted to find out if there was a way to watch it (before September on TNT) the old fashioned way.

+1

Nothing easier and more convenient than a torrent. And not necessarily in 1080p - if you want faster and lighter go 720p. Start it on your laptop, continue on your iPad on the train. I haven't turned on the horrific Horizon box in months.

Do note that (to my knowledge), uploading of copyrighted material is still forbidden in Switzerland, so make sure to set your torrent share ratio to zero---a practice higly condemed in the torrent world!

Re: When/on which channel can I watch Game of Thrones Season 4?

Can't set uploads to zero or you'll fail to download (IIRC) -- The whole nature of bittorrent is that it encourages sharing. Leeching harms you.

Not that I would ever recommend bypassing copyright or stealing, but, theoretically, newsgroups can offer the same, usually at line speed, are seldom throttled and, once you get it, easy as pie to get rolling. Oh, and you're only downloading, not uploading, so you may not be technically breaking any laws within Swiss jurisdiciton. (IANAL, batteries not included, YMMV, etc etc)

You are correct. However, the Swiss government is not too concerned...

My suggestion is to stay away from public trackers though...

There are membership sites in Switzerland which can give you direct download of Game of Thrones.
