Get launches next-generation TV box

Norwegian cable operator Get is launching a new next-generation DVR set-top along with a new television and broadband bundled product.

The Get Box II is equipped with multiple TV tuners and double the storage of the previous generation of boxes. The combined set-top and gateway box includes a built-in modem and supports telephony and two wireless home networks. Get plans to provide TV signals wireless around the home to Get Micro boxes, tablets and smartphones.

Get CEO Gunnar Evensen said the operator was testing solutions for new services, including search and recommendation across platforms and access to content on the TV, tablets and smartphones.
