Free yourself! Four Months of Horizon TV for Free with UPC!

UPC highlights its benefits of buffer-free downloads and conflict-free viewing with four times as much TV recording capability as… you know who

Monday 10th November 2014: Ireland’s leading digital TV, broadband and communications innovator UPC has announced a tempting new offer of four months of Free TV for new subscribers and current customers adding Horizon TV to their bundle.

Available now, new and existing customers can avail of the free UPC TV offer when they sign up to one of two Horizon bundles or subscribe to TV standalone, designed to suit a wide range of budgets. The move will save new and upgrading customers up to €144 on current prices.

  • Highlights of the new offer include a superfast 200Mb buffer free broadband option, delivered across UPC’s fibre power network.
  • Recording conflicts are no longer an issue for Horizon TV subscribers as Horizon TV allows you to record up to four programmes at once while watching a fifth.
  • With the Horizon Go Apps and Online service, viewers can also watch great TV anywhere in the home across multiple devices including tablets, smartphones and laptops.

Maedhbh Quinn, Head of Brand and Marketing of UPC Ireland said: “Our aim is to continuously respond to customer needs with new features and offers to bring their TV and technology enjoyment to a totally new level.

“From competitor analysis, we know that people’s biggest gripes are poor download speeds, buffering and the inability to record more than one programme at the same time. Also, people expect to be connected to their TV and internet services no matter where they are.”

“Horizon TV addresses all those issues and more for subscribers with a buffer-free, conflictfree and watch-anywhere service. This fantastic new offer allows us to provide the best entertainment and connectivity with great value for new and existing customers.”

This new offer follows a hugely successful Autumn campaign which saw UPC offering Sky Sports for just €1 a month for 6 months for new Horizon TV customers and existing Horizon customers of home phone and broadband who upgraded to a Horizon Triple Play bundle.

Delivered through UPC’s fibre power network, Horizon lets you watch TV, record up to four programmes at once while watching a fifth, surf the web and call family and friends, all through one clever box including superfast broadband.

With the Horizon Go Apps & Online service, UPC customers can also watch great TV anywhere in their home across multiple devices including tablets, smartphones and laptops.
