Recommendations re TV subscription

Dears,

I have been Cablecom customer for 6 years and I have tried all packages and I'm bored!! in the comfort package there are like travel channels and others which says are available in English as well but not always.

I have noticed Swisscom package is not bad but it's very expensive and not all in English!!

I have checked a website called Skycards.eu which they offer sky channels and ... . I'm not fan of satellite however they have a product called Freeview IPTV where there are some nice channels available for 22 GBP/Month.

Now my questions are:
1- if anyone has had an experience with this IPTV? what are your thoughts?
2- What other recommendations do you have? I don't like watching via my laptop or tablet ... just the TV (it's a smart TV)


Appreciate your thoughts

Qoqa.ch has a very good Sunrise Internet and TV offer today, have a quick look. I cut my cord and works very well with Zattoo and Netflix subscriptions and a LTE modem i had to get.

I highly recommend Ace TV the cost is around £10 per month less if you subscribe for a longer period, their customer service is great they respond generally in 5 to 10 minutes.

@Markarina, what's the quality of the video feed? Is it really HD quality?

Curious if they carry Primera Liga football as I didn't notice it in the channel lineup - although several BeIN channels

Never had any quality issues looks good to me, if you send them a message they will give you 24hr free trial and will answer questions via their facebook group

If you decide you like then I have a referral link

Re: Recommendations re TV subscription

Thanks Markarina, I checked their website and there are different ways to watch it. I saw that Mag box is available as well. I was wondering if you use it or not? is it easy to function? I have never heard anything about this mag boxes. Thanks

Personally don't use a Mag box, I either smart IPTV direct on my Samsung smart TV or I have an NVIDIA shield and mainly use an app called Extreme IPTV which allows you to record stuff.

Re: Recommendations re TV subscription

I have smart TV as well. On the website says I have to download an app for it! is it as easy as it says to set it up? will it be like watching it in the app or it will be like normal TV?!
