Switzerland: UPC children’s channels go free

March 24, 2020

As of March 25th UPC is activating access to all children’s channels free of charge.

A statement from the Swiss pay-TV broadcaster read: “The current situation calls for measures to give variety to everyday life despite all restrictions. This especially applies to the children among us. To provide them with a greater range of entertainment options and make the time at home more fun, UPC is activating access to all children’s channels from 25 March to 6 May 2020 – at no extra charge. Activation will take place automatically and applies to all customers with digital TV. The activated channels can be received not only by the UPC TV Box – more than 300,000 of which are already on the market – but also with older devices (such as Horizon or Mediabox).”

Additionally, UPC will this week roll out the RTL entertainment channel in UHD.
