Dutch cable operator Ziggo announced the launch of a new 'TV Italiana' app on its Horizon Mediabox for access to a selection of Italian-language channels.

During the test phase, all customers can access the app free. A similar app was launched earlier with French-language channels. Ziggo is using apps on the hybrid IP Horizon box to help expand its programming range.
