BT launch new Vision + box

Digital set-top boxes, Tech Digest news

bt vision.jpgIn keeping with the big green trend in electronics right now, BT are re-launching their Vision range of set top boxes, claiming a 12% reduction in power consumption.

The new BT Vision + box doesn’t just give you Freeview TV and digital radio channels, but also connects to BT broadband lines via their Home Hub router to give users access to on-demand TV, films and music. The box features a 160GB hard drive, storing roughly 80 hours of video content.

Marc Watson, CEO BT Vision said, “We are always looking at ways in which we can improve BT Vision. The new BT Vision+ box is not only better looking, it also consumes less energy, something that we know is extremely important to our customers.”

The new glossy black look for the box is designed to match BT’s “iconic” Home Hub wireless router. Well, as iconic as a router can be I suppose.

You can pick up the box for free when you buy BT Vision online, available here. You’ll want to hurry though, as the offer ends 15th January.
