    For Swiss viewers in the UK reading these headlines…. Don’t PANIC!

    SSR SRG have decided the time is right to end transmission of their programmes in Switzerland by aerial (terrestrial) transmitter only. Not satellite, which will continue and is their recommended method of replacement for the now less than 2% of the population still receiving their channels this way. With satellite it is a lot easier to change over to HD.

    Unlike Germany, when the time to end SD ( standard definition ) transmission came, they had considerably higher numbers to consider and changed all the transmitters to HD .

    Fortunately in the UK, the Swiss SSR SRG channels on Hotbird will continue and no change is required.

    These are encrypted and to obtain your Swiss card, for reception, you can apply via the Swiss Embassy or there are some online vendors selling these, although at a slightly raised price.

    The SSR SRG Satellite channel access Card enables the following channels to be seen, covering the interests of Italian, (RSI 1 and 2), French ( RTS 1 and 2 ) and German (SRF1 and 2, SRF info and 3+ ) Swiss citizens.
    Note that for full coverage a dish having both Hotbird AND Astra 1 coverage is needed.

    For those unable to obtain the card, there are also some Swiss variants of the following German channels:
    RTL, RTL2, Sat 1, Pro7, Kabel 1, Vox Plus the Swiss Schweiz 5. All these are free on the Astra 1 satellite.

    Dedication !

    During the elections of 22nd Sept 13 many different endings of this Lindensträßler episode  on that date were filmed and “installed” as soon as the results were known, be it Black-and- yellow, red – green or Grand Coalition , the hit german  tv show Linden Street was going to be bang up to date and topical. The editors in Cologne City centre recorded the first bits of the programme and edited in the appropriate responses depending on the results, just in time for the transmit time of the show.

    Long ( 18 years ) running soap opera Marienhof ended in June last year, Germans are , like all other europeans , very fond of their soaps.


    Like the Uk, the choice of tv in Germany is enormous and of high quality. Plus many of the major broadcasters have their output tailors into regional variations, so will show regional information with local news, as well as the National news. Over the last year it is particularly notable how many extra HD channels have joined the German output. Compared to other European countries Germans enjoy a huge number, over 100   free ( FTA) channels , a lot in HD.




    I’ve received a number of requests for Turkish and German channels in the same installation and from one dish.

    Yes! It is possible, see the section of the main site on the Multi dish by using this marvellous wide angle dish, All the German free channels and All the Turkish free channels, plus the Uk freesat can all be received on one set top box.
