On the TV front, you can get cablecom, with all the terrestrial channels, many of the free uk digi channels, for about 35 CHF a month + film four for instance
it's not cheap by any means
check out www.englishforum.ch

If you might want a boat here at some point, get your license in UK (which you would need, I don't know), and swap it for a swiss one in the first 12 months, just like with your car license. It's expensive to get a swiss boating license I believe.
