    If you are a UPC customer, you may have heard a bit about the on-demand service that the company is rolling out across the country.

    The new service kicks in from today for the company’s Dublin-based digital TV customers, with Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford following in July. By the end of the summer, 600,000 customers will have access to the new service.

    If you don’t know who Robert Moog is, have a look here. Then come back and give it a try.

    It only just falls behind the playable Pacman doodle for me. And maybe the Muppets one.
