With its ultrafast broadband solution, Salt provides what it calls a unique triple play service, which for the first time in Switzerland takes full advantage of the optical fibre technology with transmission rates of up to 10 Gbit/s.

The content provider is launching four channels on Salt TV. It is increasing the distribution of FunBox UHD and Fast&FunBox HD; launching Gametoon HD, the interactive, e-sports channel created by millennials for millennials; and bringing to the first time in Switzerland FightBox HD, which broadcasts live events every week such as KOK World Series, RXF MMA Championship and MFC Makowski Fighting Championship. FightBox HD, Gametoon HD and Fast&FunBox HD will be available in English, while FunBox UHD will be available in English and German.

“SPI continues to invest and expand its reach in Western Europe. Today, I am proud to announce our new agreement with Salt,” said Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe and Africa at SPI International. “As of June, four thematic channels will be available in Switzerland for Salt’s subscribers, with its young and dynamic target audience I am sure that they will all hit the mark.”
