Liberty rolls out Horizon in Poland

Horizon has launched in Germany

Horizon has launched in Poland.

Liberty Global has launched its next-generation TV service Horizon in Poland via its operator in the country UPC Polska. 

Liberty said that Polish subscribers will now be able to access nearly 100 TV channels across any screen – including National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, BBC Lifestyle and BBC Entertainment.

It also said it would launch hundreds of movies and programs on-demand and offer remote recording functionality and reminders.

Horizon is available to UPC Polska customers who subscribe to its Select Extra, Extra HD and Max HD packages with internet services provided by UPC.

The launch comes after Liberty Global CEO Mike Fries confirmed earlier this month that Poland would be the next launch market for Horizon – its fifth after the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland and Germany.

“I’m more and more excited about Horizon as time goes by, and more and more convinced that we’re on the right track. I’m thankful that we pushed for such an important and sophisticated user experience. Every cable operator will get here at some point. It just feels good to have already arrived,” said Fries at the time.

Liberty ended Q1 with more than 550,000 Horizon TV subscribers in four markets, along with an extra 2.1 million Virgin Media TiVo customers the UK.
