Channel Master Introduces DVR+

Promises TV Freedom For Consumers

PHOENIX, Dec. 16, 2013 -- Channel Master today unveiled a new subscription-free consumer DVR that promises to revolutionize how people record and view free over-the-air TV programming. DVR+™ is an easy-to-use broadcast TV DVR, combining multiple features to ensure anyone can watch and record free HD-quality broadcast TV, as well as stream video services.


DVR+ combines a high definition dual-tuner DVR, the economical flexibility of an external hard drive, streaming video services and a unique integrated TV programming guide all in one ultra-slim device, standing just over one-half inch in height.

Today, most local markets offer many broadcast channels, in addition to the major networks such as ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS, Univision, Telemundo and the CW -- all for free.

"Consumers today are demanding freedom and flexibility for their TV experience," said Coty Youtsey, President of Channel Master. "Channel Master is providing a premium option with DVR+ as consumers rediscover free over-the-air broadcast programming in the midst of a fragmented TV-delivery industry."

DVR+ lets users pause or rewind live TV up to one hour, and dual tuners allow them to record one program while watching another, or simultaneously record two programs. The DVR+ comes with 16GB of internal flash memory to get users up-and-running out of the box with the ability to pause live TV and store a limited number of recordings. Full extended DVR functionality is enabled with the connection of a USB external hard drive, providing the ultimate choice in personal storage capacity.

DVR+ is the perfect broadcast TV DVR solution when combined with a digital antenna. When also combined with a broadband connection, consumers will enjoy an enhanced program guide and access to online streaming services. Future feature upgrades are available either through a direct broadband connection or USB transfer.

The DVR+, priced at $249.99, is available now for pre-order at www.channelmaster.com and will begin shipping in early January. Channel Master will announce product availability and additional retail partners at the 2014 International CES.

Consumers interested in having access to the latest on-demand movies and TV shows will enjoy VUDU, a subscription-free video streaming service that offers thousands of blockbusters, Hollywood classics and indie films, already included in the DVR+ programming guide, with additional streaming services coming soon.
