LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2014) - Channel Master today announced that its DVR+ over-the-air, subscription-free DVR is one of the International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award honorees. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a panel of designers, engineers and trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by the Innovations team for this honor," said Joe Bingochea, Channel Master's Executive Vice President of Product Development. "The competition is fierce in the Video Components category and we worked hard throughout 2013 to deliver a timely, mainstream solution for consumers that is both practical and visually appealing."
DVR+ is a thin (1/2 inch high) device that allows consumers to receive and record local broadcast programming without a subscription or contract, utilizing a simple digital antenna. In addition, consumers have access to streaming video services and enhanced guide data with a broadband connection. For the TV Everywhere enthusiast, DVR+ is compatible with the Slingbox® 500, providing access to all live and recorded content on any connected mobile device, either around the home or around the world.
"We're different from other cord-cutting solutions," said Shelley O'Connell, Channel Master's Marketing Communications Director. "Other solutions focus on mobile devices, require a broadband connection and port content to a TV with an app. In contrast, we believe that focusing on the living room TV first, the heart of the consumer TV experience, without a subscription is the best way to provide what we call TV Freedom."
DVR+ provides all of the most popular network programming including shows, news and sports in the highest HD quality, from free public broadcast that constitutes the majority of what Americans watch on TV -- ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS and The CW.
DVR+, priced at $249.99, is available now from Channel Master at www.channelmaster.com.
