UPC Poland launches Stopklatka as first Horizon app

stopklatka horizonLiberty Global-owned cable operator UPC Poland has launched a service from movie channel Stopklatka as the first app for its freshly launched Horizon advanced TV platform. 

The Stopklatka app offers a range of movie news, trivia and trailers, along with a range of short-form video content.

UPC Poland launched a full version of the Horizon platform in January, based for the first time on the RDK platform, having launched the Horizon Go multiscreen version of the service in 2014.

The Polish version of Horizon includes the ability to record up to four programmes at once and remote recording via the Horizon Go application, as well as access on TV screens to social media sites including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. 

Separately, UPC Austria has reported strong growth in video-on-demand requests in 2014. The operator saw requests grow by 51% to 8.5 million views, thanks in part to the launch of the Horizon Go multiscreen on-demand service.
