BabelTV To Launch November 6
DaweVision's BabelTV launches November 6. The set-top box device allows users to watch and listen to all Freeview TV and radio stations combined with personal video recording and internet access capabilities. Basically, the simple-to-use device can be plugged into a Freeview aerial and broadband connection enabling TiVo-like control over television programming, access to internet TV, and even allows you to shop online! Any internet-related process like storing photos, managing emails, downloading mp3's, even making Skype calls can be done through the box. And since it's managed remotely by a Babel technical team, no tech know-how is required to operate it. Enviro-conscious consumers will be happy to know that the Babel box only consumes 15 watts of power rather than the typical 60 watts of most set-top boxes and whopping 150 watts for a computer. The boxes will be made available November 6 at the BabelTV website for 295 pounds. Oh, and by the way, Freeview is a UK-based signal provider which means no Babel TV for us North Americans. Interesting news nonetheless.
