UPC Romania launches new interactive service

Liberty Global-owned cable operator UPC Romania has launched a new interactive service, designed to make it easier for viewers to find programmes of interest. 

Zone Tematice is available to customers with a digital TV box and offers a new display screen where users can choose between different channel tiles, complete with EPG information, from a single screen.

The service launches first for 12 documentary channels – including Discovery Channel and National Geographic – though UPC said that thematic areas could be adapted to any type of TV content, including sports, movies and news.
