Cablecom welcomes television over copper wire in a sophisticated TV market
Zurich (ots) - Cablecom has provided television for over 40 years and will soon present a revised version of its digital programmes. Swisscom is launching its television over wire today thus intensifying competition in the Swiss television market. The future belongs to digital television.
Cablecom has provided television for over 40 years and was the first operator to launch high-quality digital television in 1999. In its position as market leader, the company has been successful in the analogue television segment while at the same time pushing the development of digital television. "We will soon make our digital television programmes even more attractive and hence take an important step forward in the digitalisation process", Rudolf Fischer, Managing Director, cablecom, announces. At the present time, the company is still holding negotiations with the price control authorities. The company does not wish to comment on the current talks.
With its top-notch picture and sound quality and its simple operation of technical devices, digital clearly differs from analogue television. Cablecom offers several products for different target groups. All of these can be installed without the help of a technician. Today, Swisscom is launching its television over copper wire which was announced as early as 2003. Cablecom welcomes competition in the sophisticated TV market and wishes Swisscom all the best for the launch.
