WATCH VIDEO. Austrian cable operator UPC has commenced offering its customers the possibility to watch the TV programmes of the past seven days following their broadcast.
The Replay TV function was integrated into the Horizon Go app and it can be used by UPC TV Start and Plus customers at no extra charge. The current version of the app has to be installed for access. The app is available for smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers.
When launching the app or selecting a replay programme on Horizon Go’s TV guide, the replay function has to be activated through a pop-up. From this point in time, the TV programmes are recorded and can be watched at a later stage.
The replay TV function will become available on the Horizon HD recorder and the UPC Mediabox later this year, according to UPC.
Around 40,000 households have opted for TV and multimedia platform Horizon introduced by UPC in Austria in October 2016. The cable company’s largest competitor A1 Telekom Austria has been offering a 7-day replay TV function on its mobile TV platform A1 Now since March 2016.
