“We are working on expanding our HD content base even further and look forward to [providing] additional HD content in the coming months.”
In a related development, E-Vision also announced the launch of a Personal Video Recorder (PVR) functionality for its new HD set top box. The STB will enable viewers to record up to 200 hours of content to be viewed on-demand.
