Record TV Directly From Facebook With New UPC App

UPC has today launched its new Horizon Buzz App for Facebook which allows customers to record all their TV shows without ever leaving Facebook.  The app allows UPC’s Horizon and Digital TV customers  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.

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.

Here’s how it works


How to record:

When you select a programme, the description of the programme appears along with an option to set up a remote recording of the programme.  In order to set up the remote recording of the programme, the user must have a MY UPC account.



How to like/comment/share

If the user clicks on the programme name, a mini synopsis of the show/movie appears.

The user can also post a Facebook comment, choose to Like or Share the information with their Facebook friends or the wider Facebook community, or set to record the programme.

If you do not want your comment to appear on Facebook, un-tick the “Also post on Facebook” box



How to search:

When searching for a show, it will search the UPC platform and present all available options



How to link your My UPC account:

Under the login name:

  • Invite Friends – the user can invite their Facebook friends to use the app
  • Link UPC Account – the user can log into their My UPC account so that they can set up remote record from the Horizon Buzz App

•        Choose the Link Account button
