Dutch cable operator Ziggo has launched a new app to integrate Twitter in TV viewing. The 'Kijk met Twitter' ('Watch with Twitter') app is available on its Horizon TV box and was developed in cooperation with Twitter. The app allows customers to follow the ten most trending programmes on Twitter and see live tweets about the shows in the same screen while watching. The Horizon box offers in total 83 apps, and Ziggo said it is working on adding more soon. The Twitter app was earlier launched in Germany by Ziggo's sister company Unitymedia, also part of the Liberty Global group.
