The new TV receiver can display much sharper images thanks to the new fast Broadcom 72604B0 chipset and is suitable for 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos.
The new STB also features a new remote control with Bluetooth functionality. This allows the TV receiver to be placed out of sight. The remote also has a dedicated Netflix button.
The TV receiver is more than twice as small as its predecessor. As a result, it contains 64% less plastic. The receiver is made of 33% recycled plastic. In addition, STB has an “energy-saving mode”. If this function is enabled, the TV receiver goes into standby after 15 minutes, which automatically means a deep sleep mode. At this point, the TV receiver consumes almost no energy.
As of October 1st, all new KPN iTV customers and customers who switch to a 4K upgrade will receive the new TV receiver with Bluetooth remote control. In order to be able to watch programmes in 4K with this TV receiver, a matching subscription is required. For existing customers, KPN will continue to support and improve its current TV receivers.
