Für Freunde des gefederten Balles absolut verfolgenswürdig: das Wilson Badminton Swiss Open ab dieser Woche live auf Zattoo. Das fängt ganz konkret am Dienstag, 11. März, mit den Qualitikationen an, erste Hauptrunde ist dann am Mittwoch, am Donnerstag gehts schon ins Achtelfinale, Freitag ist vorwochenendliche Vorfreude und Viertelfinal, und am Samstag und Sonntag sind schön standesgemäss Halbfinale und Finale zu beschauen. Der Kanal findet sich dann übrigens im Zattoo Player zuoberst auf der Kanalliste.

Tickets zum Halbfinal und Final zu verschenken

Da wir und die Veranstalter des Badminton Swiss Open nicht nur nette, sondern auch grosszügige Leute sind, gibts für die Halbfinal- und Finalspiele Tickets zu verschenken. Lust, in Basel dabeizusein? Dann melde dich bitte mit voller Adresse bis spätestens Mittwoch, 3 Uhr nachmittags, bei tickets@zattoo.com. Mit etwas Glück erhältst du sogar ein Ticket mit Zutritt zur Lounge inkl. Häppchen und Getränke. First come, first served …

Nachtrag: Die Finals sind auf SF2 zu sehen, da der WSBO uns die Rechte dafür nicht erteilen konnte.

Do you really know what’s going on with your money? Are you sure it’s parked in the right place? And how is the company that you’re working for REALLY doing? Find out by watching Bloomberg TV – now available in French on Zattoo. Get the latest in business and financial news, 24 hours a day.

Or are you looking for a new car to spend that money on that you don’t have? Before you make a decision, tune in to AutoMoto TV. AutoMoto TV brings you test reports 24/7, interviews with experts and representatives of the automobile industry, and specials from the world of luxury cars and tuning. It’s ok to dream of that hot toy on wheels before going off to buy the choice of your wife reason.

Finally, if you need a dose of world news in French every now and then, the French version of France 24 (replacing the English version) is now available for you.

Zattoo – TV forever, wherever.

Vroom vroom 2

February 7, 2008

car2.jpgHappiness sometimes lies in little things: the after-work beer, the sexy, red „not another new pair of shoes, honey!“ sling-backs one has passed on the way to work just one time too many, a box of chocolates. For some people happiness is when the boss notices them, for others it lies in getting through the day below the radar screen.

For car fetishists and other lovers of the four-wheeled kind Zattoo brings happiness in the form of a car channel devoted to just – well, cars.  AutoMoto TV goes car à gogo 24 hours a day, with test reports on new cars, specials on luxury and tuning models, and interviews with experts and representatives from the auto industry. AutoMoto TV is viewable in English on Zattoo in Denmark and Norway so far, and in the German version in Germany and Switzerland. It will be rolled out to the other Zattoo-ified countries soon.

Zattoo – TV to the people.

Vroom vroom

February 4, 2008

car.jpgZum Glück brauchts manchmal nicht viel: Ein Feierabend-Bier, neue Schuhe, eine Schachtel Pralinen. Einige freuen sich, wenn der Chef sie morgens wahrnimmt, andere sind glücklich, wenn sie den Arbeitstag möglichst unbemerkt überstehen.

Um den Liebhabern vierrädriger Schönheiten ein kleines Stückchen Glück zu geben, haben wir einen reinen Auto-TV-Kanal an Land gezogen. Seit heute sendet AutoMoto TV exklusiv auf Zattoo 24-Stunden non-stop Auto à gogo. Vierundzwanzig Stunden im Tag laufen Testberichte zu neuen Autos, Specials zu Luxus- und Tuning-Modellen und Interviews mit Experten und Vertretern der Autoindustrie. Zurzeit ist AutoMoto TV auf deutsch in Deutschland und der Schweiz zu sehen und in englischer Version in Dänemark und Norwegen. Die weiteren Zattoo-isierten Länder werden bald folgen.

Zattoo – TV to the people.

España: Ya Vienen Los Reyes…

December 28, 2007

picture-10.png

Los Reyes Magos se han adelantado un poco y han pasado por Zattoo para dejarnos algunos canales nuevos. Será porque quieren que ya los disfrutéis durante las vacaciones de Navidad? Este es su regalo:

  • Aragón Sat: Canal autonómico para todos los mañicos y cualquiera que se sienta jotero…
  • TVC Internacional: la televisió en català. Ja pots veure « Polònia » allà on vulguis
  • TVG Europa (a partir de enero): Se tés morriña ou estás enganchado ao Luar, para ti a Galega.
  • Popular TV: Canal de información y entretenimiento enfocado en la familia.
  • Canal Parlamento: De acuerdo… no es “House”, pero con las elecciones cada vez más cerca, igual es una buena oportunidad para ver a quien vas a votar..
  • The Poker Channel (en inglés): Todo sobre el póker. ¿Sabíais que el ganador del último torneo anual más importante de póker (WSOP) es una mujer, tiene 19 años, es noruega y por llevarse este premio se ha embolsado 2 millones de dólares…? Pues sí.
  • Bloomberg TV (en inglés, a partir de enero): Uno de los canales de noticias financieras más prestigiosos del mundo.
  • Desgraciadamente, junto a estas buenas noticias, llega una un poco mala. TVE nos ha pedido que interrumpamos la retransmisión de Teledeporte y de Canal 24 Horas, a pesar de que la había autorizado hace tiempo. No entendemos muy bien los motivos, pero tenemos que respetar su decisión, a la espera de que regresen pronto a nuestra parrilla y a vuestras pantallas…

    Estamos recibiendo muchos correos electrónicos preguntando si vamos a añadir nuevos canales. Como veis, hacemos todo lo que podemos para daros una oferta mayor, pero como dependemos de las cadenas, a veces las cosas no van todo lo rápidamente que quisiéramos. Si tenéis sugerencias para nuevos canales, no dudéis en escribirnos. Es más, quizás sea una buena idea que escribáis también al canal en cuestión…

    ¡Felices fiestas a todos! y sed malos…

    NOT FOR BORING OLD FOGIES.

    Zattoo goes freestyle! This weekend, we’ll stream the wildest jumps, the craziest flips and the riskiest tricks of Europe’s biggest freestyle sports event, freestyle.ch. Watch the world’s best snowboarders, freeskiers, FMXers and skateboarders in competition live on your computer. Here’s your tune-in timetable:

    Saturday:
    21:30-23:00
    The Ultimate Crossover Session (Snowboard, Freeski, FMX, Skateboard)

    Sunday
    14:00-18:00
    Finals and Superfinals

    freestyle.ch on Zattoo is cool live action – for free on your PC.

    ABUNDANCE IS NOT A SIN.

    At least not in our book. That’s why we’ve added even more goodies to our channels list. There’s StarTV and GIGA for movie and lifestyle buffs and TeleZüri for all the Gilli fans out there. arte (in German) helps you cure an overdose of entertainment with a shot of culture – which could also be said for 3sat. SUMO.tv gives you the best of video content online, and game-tv is for those who consider computers and consoles to be their better half. And KI.KA – this one’s especially for Amélie, but we figured that we could also make other kids happy this way.

    All of which brings us to a current total of 56 channels for the Swiss lineup. We’re now working on the next 50 …

    Zattoo – Live wild. Live free. Watch TV on your PC.

    … Or: Of countries and channels

    Hola to all current and waitlisted Zattoo users out there! Thanks to all of you for your remarks, suggestions, for your incredibly encouraging praise and also for your critical remarks. The praise makes us soar high and keeps us going, the criticism pulls us back to the ground and drives us to give you a better Zattoo.

    Apart from the many comments you also have many questions, especially on when we plan to launch in other countries and on what’s going to happen with the channel offering. So here’s a quick update on things:

    Next on the list of countries to be Zattoo-ified are Belgium, Austria („WE HEAR YOU, LINSE!“), and France. In most other European countries we’re in discussion with the broadcasters – in some more intensely than in others. We’ve stopped announcing launch dates ahead of time because we had to learn the hard way that things never go as planned when there are two parties or more involved (a variation of Murphy’s Law).

    While we’re mainly focusing on Europe this year, the rest of the world is not completely off our map. We’re also talking to broadcasters in the US („Stand by, Josephine!“) and in some Asian countries and hope to also move forward in South America very soon (this for Betty in Paraguay).

    We’re collecting all your channel requests and will certainly try to fulfill as many of them as possible, though you may need to be a little patient with us. We’re reluctant to communicate starting dates for new channels before we don’t hold the rights for them in our very own hands. This means that we can’t tell you exactly when this or that channel will be available. But you can be sure that the channels that are hot on your list are also hot on ours …

    One last thing: if you’ve got technical questions, it might be best to address them to support@zattoo.com (for Germany there’s a separate support email address: support.de@zattoo.com).

    Cheerio from the guys and gals at Zattoo!

    Zattoo – It’s a TV world. Let’s enjoy it. Wherever, whenever, whatever.

    Nine new channels

    Oops – we did it again: we made Zattoo even better. Only a couple of days after releasing a Linux version, we are adding more channels to an already impressive list. The latest release brings no less than 9 new channels in the Swiss lineup to satisfy all your TV appetites:

    With Al Jazeera International and France 24 you get 24-hour breaking news from around the world. CNBC Europe helps you make better investment decisions for those sweated savings. With the capital gain and the help of TV Gusto you may be finally able to cook something more elaborate than frozen pizza and Betty Bossi’s ready-made lasagne. DMAX, “TV for men”, gets you the content to go with that pizza. And WDR is for our German friends who Cablecom so badly disappointed when they removed the channel from the analog lineup.

    Finally, we’ve swapped BBC Prime with ITV1, and added a layer of topping with MTV for music lovers and Super RTL for the kids and those who still feel like one.

    With a total of 48 channels, spanning 5 languages and all genres, we may deserve a little rest. After all, even God did rest on the seventh day from all the work he had untertaken. But we’re workaholics indefatigable, and we’ll keep adding channels, countries, and features. So stay with us.

    Good night, and good luck.
