UPC Direct becomes a nationwide triple play provider in Hungary

28 October 2015 - UPC Direct, announces that beginning November 2nd it will be offering a unique triple play bundle product which, in addition to its satellite television, will include landline broadband Internet and telephone services for the entire Hungarian market.

UPC Direct, the fastest growing satellite provider in Hungary* celebrating its 15th anniversary, is now offering exciting packages for those customers who have had only limited access to enjoy the unique benefits of cost-effective triple play services.  The packages include not only satellite television, but also landline broadband Internet featuring in-home Wi-Fi as well as telephone services with competitive prices and user friendly conditions.  These services will be presented on a single bill from UPC Direct.

Moreover, this triple-play offering will come with many of the services most valued by UPC Direct customers in Hungary, such as  the award winning high quality customer service centre which can be reached with either a simple number (1214) or via Skype.  All current and future UPC Direct customers will be serviced by the experienced, trustworthy and nation-wide independent dealer network which provides both installation and technical support.

„We recognize the need to provide our customers with a quality service which gives them access to a full communication and entertainment service in their home.” said Michael Lee, Managing Director of UPC DTH S.à r.l. “ We are very excited that we can now offer all Hungarian subscribers a true triple play experience including free access to landline telephone from UPC Direct.  We have developed the packages based on customer feedback, delivering both flexibility and must-have services like in-home Wi-Fi.  I am convinced that many of our existing clients will take advantage of these unique products and continue to appreciate UPC Direct’s well-known high quality service. I am confident that we will also continue to attract many new customers.”

The introduction of these services through landline networks will complete the transition of UPC Direct from a traditional television service to a full-fledged triple play provider.   The same level of quality and reliability will be delivered whilst maintaining the extensive line-up of television services via dedicated satellite connection.  The three basic Combo packages which include unlimited broadband Internet, in-home Wi-Fi and free access to  landline telephone service will be offered at competitive prices with only one-year long contract period – a big advantage for customers. Through this unique packaging concept, customers will only pay for telephone services when they use them or purchase additional package as required.  Further details about the packages are available on the UPC Direct website (hu.upcdirect.com) beginning with the countrywide launch, November 2nd .

UPC Direct is operated by UPC DTH which recently announced it has over 800 thousand customers in four countries, while UPC Direct subscribers number over 285,000 in Hungary*.
