Watch up close and live with Swisscom TV regardless of where you are

The Football World Cup was the sporting event of 2018 and was broadcast on our screens in a quality that no-one in Switzerland has ever experienced before. Swisscom TV customers were able to follow the World Cup games on SRG channels (SRF, RTS and RSI) for the first time in amazing Ultra-High Definition (UHD) resolution and HDR.

HDR stands for “High Dynamic Range” and provides for an instantly noticeable improvement of TV picture quality when used in combination with UHD (Ultra High Definition). While UHD quadruples the number of pixels displayed in comparison with HD, HDR provides contrast levels that are 15 times greater than before as well as a more pronounced colour spectrum. Your television experience will thus not only be sharper, but also feature a noticeable visual depth for the first time ever.

During the 2018 World Cup, Swisscom made the hearts of those watching at home beat that bit faster, as the new UHD and HDR-quality pictures made viewers feel as if they were watching the games in the stadium. This is because the effect of this broadcasting technology is comparable to the jump in quality from analogue TV to HD TV. As a result, football fans were able to experience the excitement of the match like never before as they cheered their teams to victory. In addition to the World Cup 2018, football fans are also able to watch the UEFA Champions League, the Raiffeisen Super League, the Challenge League and the Serie A TIM up close and live, regardless of where they are – thanks to Swisscom and Teleclub.

Whether you’re watching from the stands or your sofa, football excites us and brings us together. Now, those not in the stadium can enjoy the games in a brand-new picture quality, regardless of where they are – thanks to Swisscom.
