UPC Horizon Go app

i have been satisfied with both Zatoo and Teleboy for watching TV online, but wonder is the ad-free app from UPC Cablecom is the way to go?

Anyone tried it? And does it work outside Switzerland? the other two don't...

Re: UPC Horizon Go app

It's ok for watching what's on now, but doesn't have the ability to watch earlier programmes (or if it does, it's hidden away anf not as intuitive as Zattoo).

I was a little disappointed that I couldn't use the app to schedule recordings on my main box (similar to Sky's app)

I use it regularly and it works fine for Live TV. You need to be a UPC customer (i.e. Horizon, Mediabox or at least a Digicard) to use it.
It is not HD quality, even if they display "HD" in the list of channels.

And no, it does not work outside Switzerland. When I'm abroad I usually connect to my home VPN server to keep using it.

Re: UPC Horizon Go app

Is there a way of changing the soundtrack language through the app?
When using on-demand through the cablecom-box/TV, I can press "i" on the remote and then change the language, but in the app I cannot find.

Most attempts at viewing free movies, results in German soundtrack.

Just to confirm, I did check on the TV that the movie does have the English soundtrack available.

Apparently there is no way to do so. They probably stream on the app just the dubbed version i.e. the primary audio which you get on TV.
