Another manufacturer has introduced a box for the FreeviewPlus product.
Australians have even more choice in accessing FreeviewPlus with the arrival of the second set-top box certified for FreeviewPlus which is available now in stores across the country.
Compact and easy to set up, the new TEAC HBBTS1 set-top box comes with built-in internet connectivity and can also record free-to-air programs to a USB drive, so that viewers never have to miss a thing.
Liz Ross, CEO of Freeview, said: “Having another widely available set-top box in store is a huge boon for Australian consumers who can use it to access FreeviewPlus on their existing TVs at a competitive price point.
“The award-winning FreeviewPlus service gives viewers a world of choice completely free of any subscription charges.”
FreeviewPlus uses hybrid TV technology, which seamlessly combines broadband and broadcast TV, delivering the Freeview networks’ catch-up services all in one place – on the TV. Access to catch-up and other services is easy, with viewers simply using the coloured buttons on the remote control.
Daniel Seow, Director of TEAC Australia said: “A lot of time and care working with the Freeview team has gone into ensuring a quality user experience from our FreeviewPlus set-top box. We’re proud of this new addition to our popular AV range and believe this new set-top box will further enhance the home entertainment experience for all Australians and their families.”
