Channel Master is prepping the release of Stream+ in the US, a media player that integrates streaming services and games with live broadcast TV and includes an on-screen channel guide with DVR capability to pause, rewind and record live TV.

channelmaster 29 dec 2017Stream+ runs on the Android TV platform, with dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, integrated voice search, 4K and HDR viewing technology, quad-core CPU for advanced gaming, two built-in ATSC 1.0 tuners with a MicroSD storage option for DVR, and USB 3.0 for personal media use and future options.

“Stream+ is the culmination of customer requests, market research and engineering, rolled up into an advanced solution from creative companies,” said Joe Bingochea, EVP, product development, Channel Master. “We are a consumer-first company focused on delivering value to our customers and we’re excited to do that with Android TV and the Google Live Channels app.”

Consumers can add their favourite streaming services and games from the Google Play store to combine with the free local broadcast channels provided through a connected TV antenna, all within a single graphical user interface and a single HDMI connection to the TV. Stream+ also includes built-in Chromecast functionality and integration with Google Home.

The Live Channels app installs automatically during the Stream+ set-up process to add over-the-air broadcast TV channels into a graphical guide, and installing a MicroSD storage card activates the Live Channels DVR setup process. The dual internal TV tuners allow the user to record one live programme, while watching another, or record two live programmes at the same time while watching a recorded programme or using a streaming service.
