On the forthcoming Change Day on 7 September 2016, we will mainly be making technical adjustments to the network. By making changes to the transport streams we can create additional capacity on our network.
Digital radio is very popular in Switzerland. And that is no wonder because it offers numerous advantages, such as a wider choice of channels in top quality, simple channel searching or useful information on the display such as the song title, artist or details of the current radio programme.
Digital radio requires sufficient capacity. In order to make this quality and future developments to our network possible, we will be making technical adjustments to our transport streams on the forthcoming Change Day. At the same time, we will be activating some new TV channels.

Channel search required?
The technical adjustments will result in changes to the TV channels. Whether you need to carry out a channel search and what else you should be aware of depends on your current receiver.
|Receiver||Channel search||Please note|
|Horizon HD Recorder Mediabox||takes place automatically||Scheduled recordings and favourites settings must be reset.|
|DVB-C television (with and without DigiCard) DVB-C recorder DVB-C devices||either confirm the message in the pop-up window or perform manually|
|WISI converter||either confirm the message in the pop-up window or perform manually||If the new channel list is not recognised automatically, the software is not up-to-date. In this case, please call the hotline.|
If the change does not go smoothly, you will find further information about what to do after the Change Day on our website. Our hotline agents are also there to help you.
