UPC Austria boosts catch-up offering

UPC_logo_highLiberty Global-owned cable operator UPC Austria has added content from A+E Networks’ History channel and A&E to its seven-day catch-up service.

The channels join 13th Street, Syfy, Cartoon Network, TNT Serie, Universal Channel, CBS Reality, Extreme Sports Channel, Nickelodeon and JimJam on the catch-up service.

Gerald Schwanzer, vice-president of products at the cable operator, said he hoped to be able to offer a wider range of replay TV content when the legal situation in Austria is clarified.

In addition to catch-up TV, UPC Austria offers a video-on-demand library of about 10,000 title, of which about half are free content, including the ORF-TVthek from public broadcaster ORF.
