Netgem, leader in TV & Entertainment innovation for over 20 years, has launched its first all-in-one Smart Soundbar + TV box in the UK: SoundBox HD, is now available direct to consumers under the Netgem brand via Amazon.co.uk. Acclaimed with two award wins at TV Connect 2018 (‘Best User Experience’at the Connies and ‘Most innovative in-home device’ at the TV Connect Awards), Netgem SoundBox has also been very positively received by Service Providers who have already confirmed distribution agreements to start in the coming weeks. To support this channel expansion beyond its existing B2B #TelcoTV model, Netgem will launch this year (2018) in the UK a range of smart connected devices all offering live and on-demand content across the best free and Premium content.
Unseen before, an immersive TV user experience combined with a high-quality sound speaker gives the viewer access to all the best music and video content directly from the home screen: with Freeview live channels (and catch-up coming soon after), Prime Video for the first time on a Connected Freeview STB (with one year of Amazon Prime included) and 1000s hours of on-demand shows & box sets from Amazon and a range of Content partners (Hayu, Hopster, Deezer…).
Sylvain Thevenot, Managing Director at Netgem UK, said: “We are very excited to launch SoundBox HD in the UK – and to showcase Netgem’s award-winning User Interface, where content titles are available via a ‘one-click streaming’ without crawling through each app individually: each category presents the latest recommended titles available across Kids, Music, on-demand Movies and Series, as well as live TV. The way TV should be.”
Content discovery on the Netgem TV platform is available via a traditional remote control and also enhanced by using voice control with a very advanced Amazon Alexa skill.
