How to get TV with Swish

The great news is nowadays, you can get almost any TV content OTT ‘over the top’ with Swish so you don’t need to subscribe to a particular broadband service provider. All you need to do is run an app on your smart TV or another device and subscribe with your favourite content providers directly. In fact, this can often be cheaper than a packaged TV and broadband deal.

Getting your entertainment OTT has several benefits:

  • Value: You don’t have to buy a package containing lots of channels you don’t watch, which can save you money.

  • Flexibility: Many OTT services have monthly contracts, so you are not tied in and can change or cancel at any time.  Plus you can watch on many devices such as your phone or tablet, without being confined to your living room.

  • Choice: You have access to all the content, not just what your broadband provider can offer.
