Following on from a PVR conversation we had with Metronic back in January, the launch of their Freesat+ PVR which was expected to be around April is now hoped to launch mid 2009.
Details of the PVR receiver, expected to rival the Humax FOXSAT-HDR are still unknown, but it is believed that Metronic are just waiting on approval from Freesat before commencing with the development.
Kiran Patel, speaking on behalf of Dale Heathcote, MD of Metronic said;
PVR product, as soon as we get a sign –off from Freesat then we can start the project – possibly June/ July launch!
Metronic currently have a single tuner HD digital box (model SATHD100) available, which launched 20th December 2008 through selected retailers and is reporting good sales figures so far.
