GMA AFFORDABOX DTV Receiver spotted online




Looks like GMA will also offer their own digital TV receiver in the form of the GMA AFFORDABOX.

The GMA Affordabox is similar to ABS-CBN’s TVplus, meaning it is capable of receiving digital signals and has to be connected to your existing TV so you can browse the channels. GMA programs, of course, are highlighted.

Aside from being a DTV receiver, the GMA Affordabox also works as a multimedia player, personal video recorder, and supports the nationwide emergency warning broadcast system with functional auto-on alert feature.

The price is yet to be revealed but we expect it to be under PHP 1,000 and doesn’t include monthly fees.

Will GMA also release DTV dongle similar to the ABS-CBN TVplus Go? We’ll find out soon.

    @ Adam: Brod, ISDB-T na ang ginagamit na natin ngayon at salamat sa Japan na mura nga pero garantisado pa ang mga features at specifications nila….hinding-hindi pagsisihan…sabi daw sa 2023 iyung NTSC natin totally shutdown na sa atin.

    @Cheradie Alic: sa shopee o lazada pa lang mabibili muna iyan…..pero…asawa ni pera ? pag iyan nasa commercial release na iyan….tiyak iyun….dadagsa na iyan sa mura at pag nagkataon baka bababa pa iyan iyung P888 sa ngayon….malay natin baka may promo pa iyan at mas maraming dagdag free tv channels.
