UPC is offering their Horizon TV service bundles at a reduced rate for six months, with triple play packages available for €35 a month.

The initial period of six months will see UPC’s new Horizon platform – which launched in the summer of 2013 – available in all triple play packages for the same price.

UPC customers will also be able to save on broadband and phone bundles, with double play packages going for €25.

It means all UPC customers can enjoy top of the range broadband, phone and TV services with various packages available to suit every need.

As a result, it means that between 50 and 100 TV channels are available while 120MB broadband represents the entry level speed for all packages.

Activation fees have been dropped, which represents a saving of either €45 or €90 depending on the chosen triple play package.

Existing customers can upgrade to Horizon or develop their broadband speeds for free, although UPC customers have to self install such services.

Alternatively, UPC technicians can carry out the installation for a €20 fee, ensuring that all aspects of the service are set up in the correct manner.

As part of the new deals, the Basic Fibre and Basic Fibre Unlimited bundles are just €35 a month. While UPC customers can also get the Horizon Essential, Essential Limited and Complete bundles for the same price.

Prices following the six month offer will vary between €53 and €80 a month, depending on the packages chosen.

Included in the ‘both for €25’ offer is the firm’s Basic Fibre Chat services, alongside Fibre 120 and Fibre 200, named as a result of their superfast speeds.

More than 30,000 customers have signed up for the Horizon TV service in four months following its launch, looking to take advantage of its features.

High definition programming comes as standard, while it’s possible to record four programmes at the same time while still watching a fifth.

Upgrades have been made simpler as part of the new deals, although any changes to current plans mean customers must sign up for new contracts.
