Details About the News
Only requiring simple steps to install a DVB-T USB TV tuner on the Turbo NAS, the TV Station provides an economical option to record digital TV programs and share live or recorded contents with multiple members simultaneously. Live and recorded TV programs are made accessible via web browsers. “As the amount of time spent on watching television programs over the Internet on a computer and the recorded digital content has increased over years, the TV Station rides on the trend to fulfil user’s needs,” said Oliver Lien, product manager of QNAP.
Up to 2 USB TV tuners are supported so that users can enjoy the TV program while recording another program at the same time. “Recording is extremely flexible,” added Lien. “Users can schedule the recording of specific TV programs with the over-the-air EPG (Electronic Program Guide). It only takes few clicks to get it done.”
QNAP’s Turbo NAS products have successfully integrated diverse entertainment features offering convenient and fun ways in storing and sharing photos, music, and videos at home. “The introduction of TV Station will absolutely further enrich the overall experience of using the Turbo NAS,” commented Lien.
