UPC Slovakia launches Horizon

Liberty Global-owned UPC Slovakia has launched the group’s advanced TV offering Horizon.

The service will offer a new user interface, internet TV services, seven-day catch-up TV and the MyPrime video-on-demand service with 1,600 titles available.

UPC Slovakia already offers the mobile version of Horizon, Horizon Go, which has been available in the country since May last year.

The full Horizon offering will provide over 170 channels, with a unified guide and search capability.

The seven-day catch-up service includes 40 channels, of which 19 are HD services.

Via Horizon Go, content is viewable on three mobile devices simultaneously. Horizon Go users have access to 80 channels, including 22 in HD.

The Horizon platform will be immediately available to subscribers with new Kaon 700 HD boxes. Other customers will be able to upgrade to a new HD MediaBox specifically designed for Horizon, according to the company.

Martin Miller, acting CEO of UPC in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, said that the offering would be expanded in the future to include additional services.
