A guide to Swisscom TV 2.0

Using cutting-edge technology, Swisscom TV 2.0 is a complete entertainment system. It bases on a smart box that connects to your TV and transmits at ultra high definition (UHD) picture quality. No satellite dish, no old-fashioned cable TV, just pure advanced home entertainment technology.

You are no longer tied to the fixed times of the TV schedule. As an additional benefit, Swisscom TV 2.0 subscribers can access TV 2.0 on a computer via the web, or on mobile devices using the excellent mobile app.

Swisscom offers unrivalled cultural diversity

With Swisscom TV, we enjoy the best programmes from around the world. More than 300 channels, in over 36 languages, offer unbeatable cultural diversity. Enjoy more than 140 channels in crystal-clear HD quality.

Ideal for business travellers

7-day Replay lets you easily watch shows that have already aired. With up to 2,400 hours of recording, you are no longer tied to the TV schedule.

Combined with the excellent Swisscom TV smartphone app and the Swisscom TV Air website, here in Switzerland we are re-discovering TV. We access both live TV and our recordings from wherever we are, and manage our recording schedule while on the go. The dream of TV On Demand has finally arrived.

All the entertainment you require in a box

The Swisscom TV box boasts over 300 radio stations, allows screen casting from mobile devices, and offers TV apps like YouTube, Facebook, a web browser, or Netflix. There is even a version that works as a household media hub. There's no need to buy another box!
