Freesat, the UK’s free-to-air digital satellite television provider today launches its slick new white <free time> box.
Freesat’s white box, manufactured by Humax, is the latest product with the <free time> service built in. As well as offering a great choice of TV channels, the ability to pause, rewind and record programmes, <free time> offers catch up with On Demand and the cleverly intuitive backwards TV Guide. The new white <free time> box introduces further benefits for the TV viewer. Now Wifi enabled, and with 1 terabyte of storage, viewers have the ability to connect simply, and to record over 600 hours of their favorite television.
Since launch on 4 September 2012, <free time> has received Which? Best Buy status. Total Freesat product sales since the original TV service launched in 2008 have exceeded the 3 million sales milestone.
Emma Scott, Managing Director of Freesat said:
We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of our new white box with <free time>, it’s another brilliant addition to our fantastic product range. With its increased storage capacity and Wifi connectivity, accessing <free time> is even more inviting. Viewer feedback shows that <free time> is an immensely popular service, particularly the Backward TV guide, On Demand Services and Showcase. Viewing television is one of life’s simple pleasures; our attractive new white box will now make that better still.
This latest Freesat+ box joins the existing range of Freesat digital satellite HD boxes and integrated HDTVs. It will be available to buy this week from retailers and online at a RRP of £299.
Graham North, Commercial Director of Humax said:
Following the success of the first <free time> box, Humax has continued to innovate and lead the market, introducing a white model to appeal to those with design in mind. Combining style with award winning technology, the new Humax HDR-1010S/1TB delivers the very best <free time> experience yet.
The only difference between this and the existing HDR-1000S is the colour (obviously) and the inclusion of wifi built-in (802.11b/g/n MIMO 2×2); everything else is the same. Whilst this defiantly isn’t to my taste, it might be for some.
