Electronic programme information service

HDTV stands for High Definition Television, thus for outstanding picture quality. With HDTV, pictures can be displayed in much greater detail and with much finer gradations. Contrast and contours are more precise and colours truer to their originals. Furthermore, the wide screen format on HDTV broadcasts corresponds much better to human visual perception. So it creates a more vivid impression overall.

An integrated digital video recorder (DVR) enables you to record digital TV and radio programmes without loss of quality. Besides recording and playing back TV and radio programmes, digital technology enables use of a wide range of additional handy features such as time-shifted television (Timeshift).

Time Shift
This very handy and popular type of recording enables you to start playing back while you are still recording. Hence recording and playback take place simultaneously. Recordings being played back can be stopped at any time and resumed again later. It is also possible to repeat favourite scenes and skip over unwanted sections. You can now set the start time and progress of a programme yourself.

Freesat Digital
A wide range of TV and radio broadcaster channels can be received via satellite as this is possible via cable and antenna. Hundreds of international TV and radio channels can be received for free via the Astra 19.2° East satellite position alone.
