UPC app lets viewers record TV direct from Facebook

UPC has today launched its new Horizon Buzz App for Facebook which empowers customers to record all their favourite TV shows without ever leaving Facebook. The app gives UPC’s Horizon and Digital TV customers the freedom to view what’s trending, see the most recorded content on the UPC Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) and catch a glimpse of the latest blockbuster movies airing on their favourite TV channels.

The Horizon Buzz App lets you record TV through Facebook on your laptop or tablet device and interact socially online around the content you’re recording – in effect it’s all about remote-controlling your favourite TV content through Facebook and staying up to date with Irish TV trends.

A number of additional features include watching the social TV trending top list in real time, listings of the most popular content that UPC customers have scheduled to record over the next week and the ability to see what movies are coming up next so you can plan ahead. The App is a fully-fledged social network for television, demonstrating the amazing capabilities of Horizon TV.

“As the Makers of Extraordinary, UPC is committed to delivering innovative and exciting products to our customers,” says Georgina Bowes, Digital General Manager of UPC Ireland . “The Horizon Buzz App is yet another example of how we’re doing just that. We recognise that social media is a huge part of our customer’s lives and we set out to deliver a product that would complement their online usage habits.”
