The TV Box Pro also supports 4K, 1TB of storage and Dolby Atmos audio. It will integrate four tuners, allowing viewers to record three streams and watch a fourth simultaneously. However, the Wi-Fi feature won’t be immediately available.
The new user interface currently being rolled out to BT’s other boxes also features as does a Bluetooth remote.
Commenting on the development, Chandru Lakshminarayanan, BT’s TV and sport propositions director, said:
“We’ve seen a huge growth in 4K HDR content and we’re excited that the new BT TV Box Pro supports such an immersive way of viewing.
“We’ve seen such great feedback since launching our flexible TV plans and now the award-winning platform is about to enter the next generation of viewing. We’ve got lots more planned, which I can’t wait to share with our customers shortly”.
The previous high end receiver was the HUMAX DTR-T4000.
The new BT Box Pro will initially be available to customers on the VIP package.
