UPC Nederland has introduced remote PVR control, a service that was first announced at this year’s IBC.
‘Remote Recording’ allows UPC customers to view the Electronic Program Guide (EPG) and then set up a recording for a particular programme. The App is now available for the iPhone and iPad, and also on the internet on mobile browsers. Dedicated versions for Symbian and Android are in the planning stage.
Mark Giesbers, VP Marketing at UPC Netherlands, said in a statement: “Through this application, we allow our customers even more convenience to experience the UPC offer. They need never miss a programme and can view that programme at the most convenient. With Remote Recording we offer the ability to search by programme. to set favourite channels, TV, read TV recommendations and watch the On Demand Top 10 clips.”
