Ziggo updates iPad app

Dutch cable operator Ziggo has updated its iPad app, with an expanded on-demand catalogue, new home page and faster loading TV guide.

The new app offers the ten most-watched Dutch channels including Ned 1, Ned 2, Ned 3, RTL 4, RTL 5, RTL 7, RTL8, Net 5, SBS 6 and Veronica in “almost HD quality”, according to Ziggo. The app is free to download, but users must subscribe to broadband from Ziggo to watch the channels.

“Our ultimate goal is to [offer] television and video-on-demand on any convenient screen,” said Marcel Nijhoff, commercial director of Ziggo.
