Zattoo Instead of Cablecom

Hi Guys,


I am planning on getting my cablecom socket sealed and getting an internet TV instead. I was thinking Zattoo for my Apple TV. For 10 CHF/month I can get pretty much the same channels as there are on my cable tv.


Do you think it is a move worth doing?
I case you have been using Zattoo, I would love to hear your opinion.


I know the quality of the streaming relies entirely yon the internet connectivity, however with 100Mbit I have not seen any issues so far, at least with Netflix.


Thanks for your feedback!
Cheers

I just noticed there is another topic on Zattoo. You can close this one.
Thanks!

Zattoo works perfectly fine. you don't need Cablecom unless you need some specific channel. they have 187 free channels including BBC, ITV or others.

Re: Zattoo Instead of Cablecom

Hi
The TV part of the Cablecom package is cheap at about 10 CHF a month. The majority of the monthly cost is the the internet connection cost. Zattoo works well and can be cast via Google cast or using smart TV. There are lot of cheaper ways to stream zattoo than Apple.tv Of course you still have to pay Billag for a TV licence even if you use Zattoo. I don't find UPC particularly expensive and I think it is matter of convienece.

Have fun
Martin

Re: Zattoo Instead of Cablecom

I changed from Cablecom (still have internet) to Zattoo, and it's far more convenient, also cheaper, more features, dont have to have a big box connected to the TV etc. Go for it!

Re: Zattoo Instead of Cablecom

I use Cablecom just for cable TV and would not use anything else... it's around 10chf per month and doesn't rely on your internet bandwidth.

Re: Zattoo Instead of Cablecom

I use Zattoo on Kodi on an Android Box and it's perfect when free.

The only trouble I found with the paid version is that it gives you the HD version of BBC 1, so you don't get the local news and such like.

Does the Kodi version have subtitle support? I was trying Zattoo with the Android TV version for the Nvidia Shield TV, but it had no subtitle support.
