Dual Audio

Did you know that many Swiss and Austrian channels offer many programmes in their native language? All you have to do is click a magic button on your remote.

For Swisscom users, simply look for the "options" button on your remote. You can access the latest programmes like Modern FamilyBig Bang Theory and No Reservations all in English!

Swisscom: Video On Demand

In the mood for a good film, but don't want to take the trip to the movies? No problem! With Video On Demand, you can get all the latest releases right on your Swisscom box. 

Our personal favourites? Bridget Jones' Baby, a funny rom-com, which is perfect for girl's night! La La Land is the perfect choice for date night at home. Are you a Harry Potter fan? You can see Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them!

There's always something to enjoy

Teleclub for sports fanatics

Do you love sports? Teleclub offers tons of live sports programmes. Most major European soccer leagues are covered. Are you a tennis or golf lover? The ATP Tour (e.g. Wimbedon, French Open) and all PGA tours (e.g. Majors, World Golf Championship) are also live!

Other programmes include international ice hockey (such as NHL), and World of Freesports, featuring extreme sports.

Netflix

Do you miss Netflix? Don't! You can use Netflix in Switzerland too. You can access it on digital TV such as Swisscom's TV 2.0, via your computer, or on the smartphone app - especially useful for commuters.
