Videotron adds UHD DVR to offer

Wednesday 12 August 2015 | 08:12 CET | News
Canadian operator Videotron released an ultra-high-definition (UHD) set-top box across its entire service area. Combined with Videotron's network capabilities, the set-top box will enable Videotron customers who have purchased a UHD television set to begin viewing content in UHD format when the service launches by summer's end. The illico 4K UHD set-top box also supports the HD and SD formats. Videotron customers can take advantage of the speed and power of the new illico 4K UHD set-top box immediately, even if they are not buying a 4K television set yet.
