Altibox to provide 4K TV with Huawei from March 2017

Thursday 15 December 2016 | 15:29 CET | News
Norwegian operator Altibox said that it will start connecting its first 4K television customers in March 2017, in conjunction with Huawei. It said ultra-high definition (UHD) provides a richer colour palette and more natural hue, and that rendering is at up to 60 frames per second, making motion seem more realistic. Huawei will supply a 4K platform for Altibox as well as the decoders to go with it.
