Digital boost for UPC Czech

February 9, 2009

UPC has reached a new milestone in the Czech Republic, with the number of customers for its digital cable service now exceeding 300,000.
Commenting on the development, UPC Czech’s chief executive Vaclav Barton said that the main factors for the high take-up of the service were “interest in new digital technologies, large number of television programmes in Czech that are otherwise inaccessible, attractive offer of reception of television broadcasting in HDTV and the offer of a digital video recorder (DVR).”

Although UPC’s digital cable service reached the 300,000 figure at the end of January, the number of UPC Czech homes receiving digital cable has already been higher than those for analogue cable for the last two months.
