netgem.tv’s set top boxes are now available on the Irish high street thanks to a new distribution deal between the internet TV firm and Harvey Norman.
The boxes bring saorview channels together with streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video and Youtube in a single, easy to use interface which eliminates the need to switch between devices, and are available at a discounted launch price of €99 for a TV streaming box and €249 for a combined set top box and fully integrated soundbar.
Freeview Play versions of both devices launched in the UK last year and earned positive reviews both from media and end users.
Sylvain Thevenot, Managing Director of netgem.tv said: “The way we view TV is going through a revolution and, at netgem.tv, we’re pleased to bring together the best of Pay-TV with the best of Free-TV to the Irish market – delivering the greatest value content across all consumer segments.
“We’ve innovated the TV streaming experience by combining live TV with pause and
recording, together with internet streaming, reinventing TV with a simple, affordable, and intuitive TV service to suit every user. ”
Aaron Duff, Product and Marketing Manager for TV & Audio, Harvey Norman Ireland
said: “I think it’s really important that we have a TV service option with no monthly fees here in Ireland and now we have it.
“I’m really excited to have netgem.tv in Harvey Norman stores across the country and on our site.“
