Humax adds BBC iPlayer to Freeview HD DVR

IPTV installation

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Set-top box specialist Humax will this weekend begin adding its TV Portal IPTV interface to its HDR-Fox T2 Freeview HD DVR.

The Humax TV Portal will initial provide access to BBC iPlayer, Flickr and Wiki@TV, but Humax said it will be adding Sky Player for BSkyB customers in "a matter of weeks".

Despite its name, the Portal also links up to a host of internet radio stations. Just hook your box up to your broadband router - using powerline ethernet adaptors, perhaps - and you're ready to use the service, once it has been installed.

Humax will begin transmitting the DVR's software update over the air starting today. ®
