Philips Launches Freeview HD PVR

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Philips returns with the launch of not one but two nicely designed Freeview HD set top boxes.

The DTR 5520 and the HDT 8520 will be launching onto the UK market next month and in May respectively.

The DTR 5520 offers the consumer a choice of both SD and HD content.

It offers easy to use parental controls, energy efficiency, auto channel set up and is no larger than a laptop, however it has a price tag of around £150!

On the hand there is the HDT 8520 which has the basic qualities of the DTR 5520 but offers the consumer a personal video recorder (PVR), 500 GB hard drive and dual tuners, so that one channel can be viewed while another is being recorded.

However, this set top box comes with a price tag of around £300!
