MultiChoice launches 2-tuner HD PVR 2U
DStv Online | Fri, 18 May 2012
MultiChoice has announced the introduction of an Altech UEC supplied 2-tuner HD PVR 2U into the South African market.
Collins Khumalo, Chief Executive Officer, MultiChoice South Africa, said, “This model provides the same sought-after features our PVR-enabled subscribers have come to love. It is important to us to partner with South African companies such as Altech UEC to support the manufacturing sector in our country.”
About the decoder
The HD PVR 2U, two-tuner PVR, offers one recording environment and one viewing environment, independent of each other. In addition, it offers the ability to pause and rewind live TV. The slow motion feature ensures that viewers can review split second action at will.
The PVR can record up to 150 hours of standard definition programming or 50 hours of high definition programming. It can also be linked to any of DStv's Xtraview-enabled decoders and PVRs to provide a second viewing environment.
Other features include a 24-hour i-Plate, Dolby 5.1 surround sound capability, favourite channels selection, series record, full parental control and aspect ratio toggle.
Designed for the South African market, the HD PVR 2U offers a ruggedised power supply and surge protection on both the LNB inputs and the HDMI port.
Rodger Warren, Managing Director, Altech UEC South Africa: “Altech UEC products are not new to the South African television market. We have been partnering with MultiChoice since the launch of DStv. We have consistently delivered high quality, reliable decoders to the market including the popular world-first dual view decoder in 2005 and other standard satellite decoders, like the new DSD 1132.”
DStv Value Added Services
DStv Premium subscribers will have access to DStv’s value-added services: DStv On Demand, which provides catch-up viewing of the most popular series and sporting events, and BoxOffice, a movie rental service from the comfort of your couch.
The Altech UEC HD PVR 2-tuner decoder will be available at leading retailers and furniture stores with from May 2012 at a retail price of R1499.
Subscribers should also note that a standalone HD PVR in the home attracts the normal bouquet subscription as well as a monthly access fee of R65, which is charged to access multiple environments on the DStv platform.
