UPC to offer free digital pack to analogue customers

Wednesday 27 March 2013 | 11:21 CET | News
UPC Netherlands announced it will start offering its basic digital TV package unencrypted, allowing its analogue customers to use the service without a change in hardware. Customers still need a TV with a built-in DVB-C tuner, but UPC said this is standard in around 90 percent of the TVs sold in the Netherlands. An estimated 40 percent of all UPC customers already have such a TV. The basic package includes the 29 most popular channels and 12 regional and local channels. The public channels Nederland 1, 2 and 3 will be available in HD. The price of the analogue package will be unchanged. UPC
