FreeviewPlus delivers the Freeview networks’ Catch Up services in one place — on the TV. Access to Catch Up and other services is simple, with viewers simply using the coloured buttons on their remote.
Changhong Australia general manager of sales and marketing David Esler said, “We’re pleased to release a range of FreeviewPlus-ready televisions. FreeviewPlus is an easy-to-use platform for consumers to increase their entertainment options and a great accompaniment to our high-quality but affordable products.
The new range is available in three sizes, with high and full high-definition capabilities, and enables users to seamlessly display multimedia between devices and the TV without cables or a network connection. The range also enables users to control the TV and share video, music and photos to the TV by using their mobile device.
Changhong FreeviewPlus-certified Smart TVs will be available in stores nationally from major retailers including Bing Lee, Dick Smith, Betta Stores, Bi-Rite, Kambo’s and Leading Appliances.
The FreeviewPlus service uses hybrid TV technology, which seamlessly combines broadband and broadcast TV. The technology also enables the free-to-air networks to introduce a range of new broadband services.
