UPDATE (13/1/2011): The contest is now closed! Thank you for your participation.
We probably don’t really realise it, but for many people, a big part of our lives revolve around the TV. Ever felt left out during a discussion of a football match you missed? Or planned for your toilet breaks to happen during your favourite programme’s commercial breaks? Oh, here’s another one. We bet all of you have had the dilemma where say, you REALLY want to see who’s eliminated on American Idol on StarWorld, but REALLY want to catch a thrilling CSI episode on AXN at the same time? How now brown cow?!
Yeah, we might’ve had to make hard choices and sadly miss out on some things in the past, but not anymore. Astro’s latest innovative offering, the Astro B.yond Personal Video Recorder (PVR) enables you to RECORD, REWIND, PAUSE and PLAY all your favourite programmes, including those on HD (High Definition) so that you don’t have to miss a single programme and television moment again. Now, you can watch what you want to watch, when you want to watch it. On top of that, the PVR will also be able to support exciting new features such as video-on-demand offerings in the future!
The Astro B.yond PVR was launched some time earlier this year, but in case you haven’t been properly introduced to it, here are a few of things the PVR is capable of doing:
– Record up to two channels at one time, or
– Watch one live channel while recording another at the same time, or
– Watch one recorded program while recording another two at the same time
– Rewind Live TV and enjoy unprecedented instant replays of missed action in normal speed, fast forward speed, or in slow-motion
– Pause Live TV while you’re away (say goodbye to scheduled toilet breaks!!), and play it again when you are ready to resume watching the show where you left it
Not too shabby, eh? If you’d like to get an Astro B.yond PVR for yourself and take charge of your TV-viewing experience, we’ve got good news for you!
