Bell ExpressVu releases dual tuner, high-def PVR
Bell Canada announced June 15 it was launching a dual tuner, high-definition (HD) personal video recorder (PVR), the 9200 model. It will be available across Canada in early July for a purchase price of $599 or it can be rented for $25 per month. The PVR allows TV viewers to record up to 180 hours of standard definition programming or 25 hours of HD programming; record up to three HD programs while watching two playback events at the same time; manipulate the size and location of the picture-in-picture (PIP) feature (even with a non-PIP television); and navigate channels and schedule viewing or recording times for upcoming shows. "Bell is making it simple for the hundreds of thousands of Canadians who either own or plan to buy a high-definition television to enjoy the ultimate viewing experience," said Bell Express Vu president Gary Smith.
