ADB to launch Freeview HD box

Set-top box maker ADB is to take its first step into the UK retail market by launching a DVB-T2 HD set-top.

The set-top, to be marketed under ADB’s retail marquee, i-Can, will include ADB’s own Carbo user interface, and will come in a small form factor.

The box will be a connected device, and ADB plans to deliver the BBC iPlayer catch-up TV service on it from launch, using an HTML version of its interaction channel. The box is expected to be in the shops from May. ADB said it had no plans for a DVR version of the box for now.
