Ziggo plans Horizon apps to offer more channels

Tuesday 22 March 2016 | 10:58 CET | News
Dutch cable operator Ziggo is working on apps for its Horizon set-top box in order to offer more channels. According to the notes from a meeting between Ziggo and the cable users group Coax, the first such app would offer access to eight French-language channels, including the main public channel France 2. This would be offered free to start. Ziggo will look at offering apps for other language groups as well, as a way of making up for limited bandwidth to offer more channels. It's not yet known when the services will start.
