Swiss Cable Javea

Swiss Cable TV Service operating in the Javea area of Spain, which is unrelated to and Swiss TV channels or Swiss law. Swiss Cable Javea are a rebroadcasting cable company, rebroadcasting TV channels to clients in the Javea area via cable or a “beam” service.



There is an IPTV operator calling themselves “Zurich-kabel-tv” that primarily offers IPTV in Tenerife. I believe they are not connected to an Swiss broadcaster, but they like people to think they are, quoting Swiss law suggesting they can legally retransmit content from Swiss TV providers to other areas of the world. However:

“In Switzerland, it’s legal to retransmit services that can be received via satellite overspill, as long as rights holders are compensated.

Some IPTV operators based in Switzerland have taken advantage of this rule to relay services back out of Switzerland, but this is an area of legal contention, especially when the broadcasts are transmitted back in to the EU, where broadcasters must provide permission for such retransmissions as per a recent court ruling.

Rogue operators which retransmit Swiss cable TV via the internet, often with websites that highlight the legality of receiving British TV in Switzerland, fail to mention that such retransmission of services falls foul of the terms and conditions of the cable operators.

While copyright/royalty fees are being paid by the cable operator on the basis of domestic users accessing the service, unauthorised retransmissions are not covered. Services are thus accessed at a user’s own risk and may be closed down without notice.”

According to their website, their website technical contact is a Janine Alder, who coincidently, is also the name of a Swiss Ice Hockey player. Make of that what you will…
