SHOWSHIFTER DISCOUNTED FOR SPECIAL FIFTH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

Home Media Networks Lowers Price of Popular Media Center Software

Home Media Networks Ltd, the leading developer of media center software, today announced that it is to drop the price of ShowShifter to its original selling price of just £29.99, in honour of its fifth birthday on the 14th February. This celebratory promotion, discounting the price of ShowShifter by £20, will last for one week.


ShowShifter allows users to watch, record and time -shift (pause) TV, play DVDs, CDs and MP3 music files all through one interface. The ability to control ShowShifter with a remote control and its unique Farview interface enables the consumer to use the product from anywhere in the room with a simple, unified interface for all home entertainment components (DVR, DVD, CD, etc), as with conventional home entertainment products.

ShowShifter has seen soaring demand since its launch in 2000, and now boasts over 700,000 users worldwide. The product is proving particularly popular in the UK, Germany and Australia, with sales recently trebling in line with the growing popularity of HDTV in the latter.

ShowShifter has continually evolved to meet consumer demands. The latest version - 3.10 - includes a ShowGuide, which is automatically populated with data retrieved either direct through DVB signal, or via the Internet, and shows up to seven days worth of upcoming programming.

ShowShifter's popularity is such that it is the first PVR software application to warrant the launch of an independent site run by ShowShifter users, for ShowShifter users, called ShowShifterGroup (www.showshiftergroup.com).

Evaluation versions of current English and international versions of ShowShifter can be downloaded from www.showshifter.com.
