Exertis Micro-P has been appointed the sole distributor for Huawei’s new set-top box YouView+.
The distributor anticipates considerable interest from its channel partners in the YouView+. It has been designed to offer the seamless integration between digital, terrestrial, and internet television, and includes a 500GB YouView high definition personal video recorder that can record up to 300 hours of standard and 125 hours of HD programmes.
The The YouView+ box is available either for a one-off cost as standard – which allows customers to access a host of digital channels without the constraints of a binding contract – or an option is also available to upgrade and receive additional content for BT and TalkTalk broadband customers.
“Huawei’s technology continues to be at the centre of the developments in British television viewing. For the distribution of this latest device, we wanted to work with a company that has strong market experience and we are thrilled to have Exertis Micro-P on board to realise its full potential and market demand,” commented Huawei UK and Ireland Executive Vice President Mark Mitchinson.
“This is an extremely exciting opportunity for the Consumer Division within Exertis Micro-P,” added Caroline Hope, Consumer Electronics General Manager.
“With the strength of a brand like Huawei, partnering with Exertis Micro-P’s strength in pulling together a truly connected home experience, we are looking forward to bringing this proposition to the retail market.”
