WALLISELLEN — UPC TV customers can now benefit from more freedom and flexibility – at no extra charge: as of today, all users can enjoy UPC TV content on additional devices such as Apple TV, Android TV or Amazon Fire TV.

UPC TV means being able to watch all content anytime and anywhere and seamlessly switch between various devices such as smartphone, TV or tablet – all with just one swipe. All it takes is the UPC TV App. It offers total freedom and flexibility: customers can switch between their different devices, for example stopping the content on the TV and continuing watching it on their mobile phone, TV or tablet, right where they left off.

By using the app, customers can now also integrate further end devices such as Apple TV, Android TV devices and Amazon Fire TV – at no extra charge –and enjoy UPC TV directly on one of these devices. The UPC TV App can also be shared from a mobile device to watch TV on a bigger screen with Chromecast and AirPlay.

The freedom of choice for TV customers

UPC TV customers have over 240 channels to choose from, including the MySports One channel, which offers exclusive live sport. Thanks to the latest addition, several people in a household can view the content on different devices, including devices from external providers such as Apple, Amazon or Android. In combination with the profile function, which allows each person in the household to save their personal preferences, UPC TV offers individualized content, regardless of the device.

Stefan Fuchs, Chief Commercial Officer of UPC, notes: “Evolving customer needs are at the centre of everything we do at UPC. We have therefore expanded our TV experience to offer our customers the freedom to watch TV not only anytime and everywhere, but also on all the devices they like to use.
