SBS partners with Humax
Humax is the first and only Digital TV Recorder to offer the SBS ON
DEMAND service, which is the latest addition to the wide range of
features available with Humax. The award winning Korean Digital TV
Recorder is revolutionising the way Australians watch television and
also offers the availability of ABC TV’s i-View catch-up service as well
as unique synergies with IceTV.
The SBS ON DEMAND application gives Humax owners access to a vast range of the high quality and unique programming that SBS is known for. TV shows, films and event footage from around the world is all available at any time, including full episodes, clips and live streams.
Users can pick and choose SBS videos, programs or entire series and add them to their own unique playlist. They can easily browse and search the full catalogue of videos and receive recommendations
about the content most relevant for them.
Marshall Heald, SBS Director of Online content, said: “At SBS our mission is to make our distinctive content as broadly available as possible. Since its launch in Australia last year, Humax has garnered impressive popularity. We are pleased to be able to add to their already impressive offering and to have partnered with a product of such exceptional quality.”
Bryce Russell, Managing Director of Humax Australia said: “At Humax we strive to offer our customers the latest innovations. SBS is known for its ground-breaking and original content. We are thrilled to have them on board and their involvement is a fantastic endorsement of the quality of our product.”
Humax launched its ‘next generation’ range of HD Digital TV Recorders last September and has quickly become the most awarded PVR in Australia, winning the Sound & Image ‘Best PVR’ title whilst also triumphing at the Smarthouse Smart Awards 2012.
The Humax HDR-7500T is available with either a 500GB (RRP $449) or 1TB (RRP $549) hard-drive.
Prior to its launch in Australia, Humax became the No.1 best seller in many countries around the world.
