The electronics giant Panasonic has already announced that it is bringing out a range of the Freesat+ recorders complete with a Blu-ray option.
The company has confirmed that these new machines will be available from the 20th June this year and will include a couple of choices too.
This range of equipment will allow the user to record HD content direct from their satellite TV provider, which in this case is Freesat and even burn around 50 Gb onto a disc using the Blu-ray option.
The recorders also come with twin Freesat tuners which enable the user to record one programme while watching another on a different channel.

DMR-BS850 featuring a 500GB hard drive this will be priced at £999.
DMR-750, with similar spec to the DMR-BS850, but with a 250GB hard drive will be priced at £899.
DMR-XS350, featuring a 250GB hard drive, but will have no HD archiving; this will cost £699.
