Last week, VodafoneZiggo said it would start to roll out the new platform in Q1 after testing the platform with a smal number of beta customers.
Liberty Global has unveiled its next-generation TV entertainment platform, Horizon 4, at the company’s annual Tech Summit in Amsterdam in September. The new STB features 4k, cloud PVR and voice control.
The new STB gives access ccess to linear TV, Replay and Video on Demand; and to apps such as Netflix and YouTube – all in up to 4K Ultra HD picture quality. Recordings will be stored in the cloud rather than on a local hard drive.
In order to provide 4K content for the new platform, VodafoneZiggo has started distributing Love Nature UHD on its network on a test basis.
