The digital world opens up an endless range of options for us. In this article we will give you a brief though not exhaustive insight into the various digital entertainment options in Switzerland and the best way to use them.

First things first: streaming

Since the introduction of streaming services, the way we watch television has changed dramatically. Streaming services have become a popular form of entertainment and offer a seemingly endless wealth of content.

The giant Netflix is impressive with its variety of original series and films, while Disney+ gives you access to an array of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars films and series. Amazon Prime’s range includes a mix of original and licensed content. As well as offering films and series, Sky is primarily dedicated to live sports. Play Suisse is specifically aimed at the Swiss market, with a wide range of Swiss and international films for you to stream.

💡 Tip: use the free trials of the various streaming services to explore the selection and find out which one suits your requirements.

Online gaming: tips for getting started

Many people are unsure about online games because of their complexity and competitive nature, but don’t worry: there are games for every level and every type of preference. Games such as “Fortnite” or “Call of Duty” are very popular because of their intense action and the opportunity to play with friends. If action games are not your thing: no problem. How about the relaxing “Animal Crossing” where you can design your own island, for instance? Or you could take on the role of a farmer in “Stardew Valley”?

💡 Tip: start with single-player or slower-paced games to understand the mechanics of the game before diving into the competitive world of multiplayer games.

Discovering creative hobbies in the digital age

The digital age not only offers us entertainment, but a variety of new hobbies too. It starts with creative pastimes such as digital drawing or music production, where programs like Adobe Illustrator or GarageBand enable you to access your artistic side. To learning and educational platforms such as edX, Lecturio and Iversity, with which you can learn everything from programming to marketing online.

💡 Tip: begin with free app versions or courses to find out what suits you best before you invest in paid tools and courses.
