|The HBBTS1 comes with built-in internet connectivity and is able to record free-to-air programs to a USB drive, delivering the Freeview networks' catch-up services via FreeviewPlus.|
FreeviewPlus employs hybrid TV technology, combining broadband and broadcast TV, offering a range of features, including access to available free-to-air catch-up services in one place and a seven-day electronic program guide.
"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," Freeview CEO Liz Ross commented.
Daniel Seow, TEAC Australia director, stated that "a lot of time and care working with the Freeview team has gone into ensuring a quality user experience" from the HBBTS1.
"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," Seow stated.
The HBBTS1 is available nationally at Betta Home Living, The Good Guys and Harvey Norman.
