.ch merges with FreeTV

freetv.jpgThe new Swiss free daily .ch has taken over the boxes (and publication) of Swiss free TV-guide FreeTV. This daily was launched in November 2005 by commercial broadcaster U1 and soon gained the reputation as the worst free daily ever. It contained the daily TV programs and some articles, taken without credits, from Wikipedia and other internet sources.

Initial circulation was said to be 100,000 – although very few people ever picked it up. The daily, however, converted into a weekly later.  According to .ch the paper will now incorporate TV-listings by U1, suggesting that the weekly will not be available anymore. With the merger 150 more boxes will be used by .ch. (Persoenlich)
