Panasonic brings HD Blu-ray recording to UK with the DMR-BS850 & BS750

Blu-ray, HDTV, Satellite TV

Blu-ray-recorder.jpgPanasonic launched not one but two dual-tuner Freesat HD Blu-ray PVRs yesterday at their shindig over in Amsterdam, making the DMR-BS850 and BS750 the first of their kind in the UK.

No prices as yet – something pretty hefty, I’d imagine – but in May you can expect a pair of machines that’ll allow you to watch and record satellite content, HD channels and record onto Blu-ray discs if you really want to as well.

Exact specs and details are a little thin on the ground but we do know they’ll be SD and USB slots as well as an Ethernet port which will also allow for the delivery of Panasonic’s internet TV service, Viera Cast.

The only other thing you need to know is that the BS850 comes with 500GB of storage and the BS750 with 250GB. Sounds like a lot but, when you’re talking HD content, that juice will disappear fast.
