UPC DTH adds new services

Liberty Global-owned satellite TV unit UPC DTH is adding new services to its freeSAT service in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, UPC Direct in Hungary and Focus Sat in Romania.

The DTH unit is adding five channels to the Czech, Slovak and Hungarian services and six to the Romanian service.

New channels to join from March 10 include educational channel Da Vinci Learning, crime and investigation channel Investigation Discovery, lifestyle channel Fashion TV, martial arts channel BlackBelt TV, motorsport channel Auto Motor Sport and – in Romania only – Asian entertainment channel Bollywood TV.

UPC DTH is also adding the Music Choice music streaming service to freeSAT and UPC Direct. The service will be available to basic package customers with a Humax HD set-top or DVR. Music Choice offers a choice of 10 genre-specific channels.

“We are pleased to further enrich our packages in all our markets through the addition of these channels.  We regularly ask our customers what type of content would enhance their viewing experience.  Based on the feedback received we are confident the additions of these channels and the new music service will be well received.  This change further enhances our already rich packages, giving UPC DTH customers everywhere more choice without additional cost or compromise,” said UPC DTH managing director Michael Lee.
