Prime Video

Prime Video Swiss

Prime Video is the streaming platform managed by Amazon, the largest US e-commerce site. Worldwide, the service has gained warm success comparable to that of Netflix or Disney Plus, but in Switzerland, due to a more limited offering compared to other countries, it has not yet found the same success.

 

Among the titles offered by Prime Video in Switzerland, the greatest success has been found in Amazon Original series produced by Amazon Studios, including "The Boys" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power."

Prime Video: How much does Amazon Prime cost in Switzerland?

To access Prime Video Switzerland services, you need an Amazon Prime subscription, which is priced at CHF 9.99 per month. With the subscription you have access to the entire Amazon Prime world including Amazon Prime Music, fast delivery and the streaming part. The service can be tested with a seven-day trial period.

A small ploy to save a little on this type of subscription is to be able to take out an Amazon Prime subscription in a neighboring country such as Germany, France or Italy where, respectively, for only EUR 8.99, EUR 6.99 or EUR 4.99 per month you will have access to the same content. Moreover, in this case the free trial period is extended to 30 days.

 

You can cancel the subscription at any time without penalty by continuing to use it until the end of the billing cycle.

 

In addition, by purchasing an Amazon Prime subscription you will be able to get additional Amazon benefits, which include free shipping and fast delivery on thousands of items for sale on Amazon's marketplace.

Streaming Features of Prime Video: Audio, Video, and Content

To subscribe to the platform, you will need to activate an Amazon Prime account, and you will have access to additional Amazon services, including Amazon Music and Prime Video. For Swiss customers, there are currently no territorial limits on registration, so it is also possible to join the Amazon Prime program in one of the neighboring countries, thus accessing a more extensive catalog but with language limitations.

 

To subscribe to Amazon Prime, simply log in with your Amazon account and request access to the trial period by entering a valid payment method, after which you can start using Prime Video and streaming your favorite content.


The renewal of Amazon Prime is always automatic, both for a monthly and an annual subscription. Still, you can cancel at any time online by going to your Amazon personal profile and, in the subscription section, select the "Do not extend" option in the settings. This will cancel your Amazon Prime Video subscription, and you will not pay anything more.

Blue TV

Blue tv swisscom.png

Blue TV è la piattaforma streaming offerta da Swisscom, la società leader di telecomunicazioni svizzera, in modalità IPTV. Da settembre 2020 la piattaforma cambia nome che passa da Swisscom TV a Blue TV e nello stesso mese viene lanciata anche la nuova App per guardare i programmi offerti in palinsesto sia su Smart TV che su TV-BOX offerti dai concorrenti come Sunrise o Salt.

Oltre a questo sarà incluso anche lo sport in diretta con la possibilità di messa in pausa per non perdersi alcun goal o scene di ammonizioni o espulsioni grazie al palinsesto completo di blue Sport.

Subscription, Renewal, and Cancellation of Prime Video

To subscribe to the platform, you will need to activate an Amazon Prime account, and you will have access to additional Amazon services, including Amazon Music and Prime Video. For Swiss customers, there are currently no territorial limits on registration, so it is also possible to join the Amazon Prime program in one of the neighboring countries, thus accessing a more extensive catalog but with language limitations.

 

To subscribe to Amazon Prime, simply log in with your Amazon account and request access to the trial period by entering a valid payment method, after which you can start using Prime Video and streaming your favorite content.


The renewal of Amazon Prime is always automatic, both for a monthly and an annual subscription. Still, you can cancel at any time online by going to your Amazon personal profile and, in the subscription section, select the "Do not extend" option in the settings. This will cancel your Amazon Prime Video subscription, and you will not pay anything more.

Amazon Prime Video Customer Support: Contacts Switzerland

To resolve issues related to your Amazon Prime subscription, you can take action independently by searching for the topic in the help section on the official website www.primevideo.com/help, where you may also start a chat with a virtual operator if you don't find the answer to your question.

The content on the platform comes from various brands within the group. It includes films and series from Paramount Pictures, children's animation from Nickelodeon, and original content from Bet and CBS.

RTL plus Swiss

RTL+ is the TV streaming platform of RTL, the German broadcaster, offering a rich catalog of movies, dramas, documentaries, and TV series. Additionally, within the RTL+ service, you will find 14 live streaming TV channels. The uniqueness of this offer is that viewers can watch programs before they are broadcast on TV.

RTL+ Premium: How much does it cost to subscribe to RTL+ in Switzerland?

To subscribe to RTL+ Premium, you must reside in a German-speaking country (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, or Liechtenstein) and pay €6.99 per month to access premium streaming content. The RTL+ Max subscription, costing €12.99, cannot be activated outside German borders.

Streaming features of RTL+ Premium

The RTL+ Premium streaming service includes the following features and streaming functionalities:

  • Only one user at a time: The only way to use the RTL+ subscription on multiple devices is to subscribe to RTL+ Premium Duo or RTL+ Family with higher prices.

  • HD video: Good-quality images will be available in high definition provided that the device used supports this video signal.

For example, if an RTL+ customer with a renewal on the 10th of the month were to terminate RTL+ on the 1st of the month, they could continue to use the service until the end of the month, and the days from the 10th to the 30th would be billed proportionally.
