About the Samsung SMT-S7800 Freesat+HD Digital Box (official press release 23-Mar-11)
Samsung Electronics Co. UK Ltd., announces the sleek and stylish SMT-S7800 Freesat HD PVR, providing choice and flexibility to TV owners wanting to get the most from their set.
Offering up to 250-hours of standard definition or 120-hours of high definition recording with its 500GB of storage, the built-in twin tuner lets you record one channel while watching another. The ‘+’ functionality means that you can pause, rewind and fast forward live TV, so there’s no need to miss your favourite programme.
The SMT-S7800 is full HD, delivering dazzlingly rich colours and vivid detail and it supports standard definition upscaling, providing a sharp and crisp picture. It is also Wi-Fi enabled and will allow you to gain access to Freesat’s on demand services including YouTube and BBC iPlayer. Support for ITV Player will follow shortly.
The contemporary and minimal design makes the PVR a stylish addition to any home entertainment set-up. Features include a light-up front panel showing channel information, time and commands plus a USB port integrated into the chic facia.
Samsung’s Smart Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) makes finding your favourite TV shows easy with channel programme listings, series link, recorded programme lists, disk space availability and a screensaver function to protect the TV. The SMT-S7800’s low power consumption in standby mode is less than 1watt, which will appeal to eco-conscious consumers.
Andy Griffiths, Vice President of Consumer Electronics, Samsung UK, said,;
Samsung continues to deliver against its promise to create products that evolve with the needs and desires of our customers. With the Digital Switchover happening, we want every TV owner to be able to enjoy a great selection of TV channels and connectivity options. The SMT-S7800 is Samsung’s first foray into the UK retail set top box market and we are looking forward to becoming a force in this sector
Managing Director of Freesat, Emma Scott, said;
Marrying a trusted and loved national TV service with such a well known household name can only mean good things for both Samsung and Freesat, and it’s great to have them on board. This launch further strengthens the Freesat proposition of subscription-free satellite TV and is part of our long-term plan to keep on innovating to offer viewers across the UK great TV without monthly bills
