Freesat, the subscription-free satellite TV service, has launched its new Freesat HD with freetime box, further bolstering the products available with freetime built in. The freetime box is manufactured by Humax and will be available to buy immediately from UK high streets for around £99.
The new Freesat HD with freetime box allows viewers to tune into over 180 free digital TV and radio channels, six of which are available to watch in HD, with more to come in the New Year. As part of the freetime family of products, the new box offers the full set of the UK’s top On-Demand players – BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5 and YouTube. The new compact box provides all the key benefits of freetime to viewers wanting to choose a stylish, value option or those looking to add freetime to a second or third room in their home. Freetime products that also offer intelligent record ability are already available in-store and online.
“The new Freesat HD with freetime box is a natural extension of our award winning TV service, and it’s great to build on the popularity of the service, “said Matthew Huntington, Freesat’s Chief Technology Officer. “It’s a product we’re really proud of, offering the popular benefits of freetime such as Catch-Up and On-Demand TV, including BBC iPlayer, 4oD and YouTube, via a slick TV Guide which rolls back in time and also gives recommendations on what to watch.”
