To enable millions of Filipinos to access high-quality, affordable digital TV experience, GMA Network unveiled its very ‘GMA Affordabox,’ marking its 70th anniversary.
It was announced last night during a special episode of ‘Wowowin.’
Affordabox is a plug-and-play device that can easily be connected to an analog TV in order to receive digital television broadcast. Users can watch GMA, GMA News TV, and the most-awaited Heart of Asia in digital display, as well as all other free-to-air digital TV channels available in their area.
With a sleek black metal casing that is set to endure years of TV viewing, GMA Affordabox provides superior digital reception as well as additional features that will take the users’ entertainment experience to a whole new level. It comes with a built-in multimedia player that makes it an all-around digital file access device allowing users to play compatible video files, view photos, and even listen to music using a USB drive.
Allows viewers to record shows
Another advanced function of the GMA Affordabox is its personal video recorder that allows viewers to record GMA, GMA News TV, and Heart of Asia programs so they never have to miss any of their favorite Kapuso shows. Affordabox users can watch and re-watch highlights of the shows by instant or scheduled recording.
In addition to the one-of-a-kind features exclusively available for GMA channels, the device also has a nationwide Emergency Warning Broadcast System (EWBS) that receives alerts from the NDRRMC about any calamity warnings in their area. It will automatically set off an alarm during emergencies with its functional auto-on alert feature for every household’s safety and preparedness.
For just a one-time purchase of P888 and no monthly fees, each GMA Affordabox unit promises to deliver a clearer and more vibrant TV viewing experience along with other bonus features.
Starting yesterday, the Afforabox is now for sale online and in stores for the following areas where GMA’s digital signal is already available: Metro Manila, Benguet, La Union, Pangasinan, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Quezon, Rizal, Bohol, Cebu, Leyte, Davao de Oro, Davao del Sur, and Davao del Norte.
