Humax has launched a YouView set-top box priced at under £200 in the UK, offering what it said is a “seamless on demand TV service at an attractive low price point.”
The £199 box Humax YouView DTR-T2000 box offers 70 live free-to-air digital TV and radio channels – including six in high definition – and can record 300 hours of content in SD or 125 hours in HD.
The box also gives access to the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 catch-up services and offers record, pause and rewind functionality.
“It’s great to see the YouView box offering evolve into a faster slim-line version with the advent of new hardware technology available from Humax. We are confident this new box combined with a lower price point will give customers an affordable and easy-to-use experience to find and enjoy the TV they love,” said David Faulkner, YouView’s head of corporate and business development.
