Swisscom launches new TV app

Swisscom has launched a new TV app, which now offers access to over 80 live channels as well as time-delayed programmes on tablets and smartphones.

The new app combines the previous TV Guide and TV Air apps into a single app and includes a number of new functions, according to the Swiss telco.

Programmes can be recorded while on the move and accessed later on a TV, PC, tablet or smartphone, regardless of which device the programme was recorded on. Live pause and replay functions for time-delayed TV are now available on mobile devices for the first time.

The free app is available for iPhones and iPads and for Android smartphones. A Swisscom TV Air subscription is required to use the replay and live pause functions. This is included in the Vivo Casa combined packages or is available for CHF9 (€7.45) per month.

The Swisscom TV Air app will continue to be available for Windows Phone devices.
