Digitec Podcast episode 114: "Replay TV with advertising? Does anyone still use it at all?"

Philipp Rüegg

Telecom providers will soon be charging for ad-free replay TV. We ask ourselves: Who uses that anymore? Then we talk about the countless new games that were presented this week, the Netflix series "Cyberpunk Edgerunner" and the metal shooter "Metal Hellsinger".

Skipping advertisements will soon only be possible with Replay TV for an additional charge. This is what Swiss telecom providers have decided. Luca, Domi and I discuss whether this will drive viewers into the arms of streaming providers in the podcast. Afterwards, we turn our attention to the various livestreams from Nintendo, Sony and Ubisoft.

The new Netflix series "Cyberpunk Edgerunner" is worth talking about. It is inspired by the game "Cyberpunk 2077" and in many ways is better than the original.

One of the game highlights this week is called "Metal Hellsinger", a first-person shooter in which you shoot to the beat of metal music.

Being the game and gadget geek that I am, working at digitec and Galaxus makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop – but it does take its toll on my wallet. I enjoy tinkering with my PC in Tim Taylor fashion and talking about games on my podcast To satisfy my need for speed, I get on my full suspension mountain bike and set out to find some nice trails. My thirst for culture is quenched by deep conversations over a couple of cold ones at the mostly frustrating games of FC Winterthur.
