Sky TV Switzerland

Not sure if I just missed this, but I can't see anything on the forum about it.

Re: Sky TV Switzerland

OH won a free month on a WRS competition so we tried it out.

Only works on a very limited number of smart TVs, not ours (Phillips). Purported to work on iPads and Desktop computers. We have 1GB from our ISP but streaming was impossible.

So we cancelled before they started billing us. Got an email saying they were very surprised that we had cancelled. A response outling our reasons went unanswered.

They are offering a free trial week, your experience may be different, but donít forget to cancel quickly if you donít like it.

Re: Sky TV Switzerland

It looks like a very limited choice of live TV.. That's what puts me off. My wife wants to watch a bunch of junk UK TV but there's nothing there.. And the couple I might occasionally watch live Nat Geo or History appear to be in German.

We already have Netflix and Apple TV+, Disney+ and Swisscom so I don't see any extra value .. If it was up to me I'd cancel the lot but three female TV fans in the house object to that.

Plus we have IPTV .. And hardly watch any of it :-/

Re: Sky TV Switzerland

I had the Sports subscription as it has Golf and the premier league.

Cancelled it due to lockdown. I like the monthly subscription basis so I can practically cancel anytime I want.

There is an offer currently, Fr.10 per month for 4 months. But there is hardly anything to watch...

Re: Sky TV Switzerland

We subscribed to Sky back when Game of Thrones was still worth watching, we remained because the series options are quite good and mainly from HBO. Movie options leave little to be desired.

You can actually add most apps on the new Swisscom box, regardless of tv, including Sky, Netflix, HBO, Spotify etc etc

I watch all my UK Sky Sports channels via Sky Go and a VPN via my existing UK subscription. It's a shame they block Apple airplay to my TV but I can use a HMDI cable from the laptop and watch it that way which is ok.

Obviously not a solution for everyone if you don't still have a UK sub.

How? And how "new" does it have to be? Ours was replaced some time last year, is there another version out already?

Edit: I see there is. https://www.swisscom.ch/fr/clients-p...Bselected%5D=0
So when you talk about "most apps" does it just allow you to use any android or <spit> apple app, or is it only a preselected set that they provide?

Disappointing, but perhaps no real surprise. Looks like I'll have to stick with the existing solution of an Android TV box next to the Swisscom one then.
