Subscribers will be able to purchase the DigiCard for CHF 99 (€67.70) with Cablecom hoping that the card, which fits into the Common Interface slot on a number of the latest television sets, will encourage cable viewing on second and third sets.
The introduction of the DigiCard is part of a new digital package being launched by Cablecom in June. The 55-channel offer also includes a 300 Kbps ‘free broadband’ connection. A price increase of CHF 0.70 will take the monthly subscription to CHF 23.20. To date 400,000 Cablecom subscribers have opted for the current digital package.
