The Philips HDT8520 is all you need for complete control of Freeview HD TV.

Featuring the latest T2 Freeview HD digital tuner, the HDT8520 gives you access to Freeview HD channels using your existing HD Ready TV. In addition to this, the HDT8520 features a 500GB hard drive and twin tuners. The 500GB hard drive is enough to store up to 125 hours of HD TV and makes the HDT8520 the ideal replacement for a DVD recorder or VCR. Twin tuners allow you to record one program while watching another.

Where the Philips HDT8520 really stands out from its rivals is in offering 1080p upscaling. Although Freeview HD, like all other types of existing digital HDTV, is broadcast at 720p or 1080i resolution, the HDT8520 will upscale this to 1080p, giving you even better clarity should you have a 1080p TV.

In terms of connections, the HDT8520 has everything covered. HDMI connects to your TV while an Ethernet connection makes it easy to download future firmware upgrades.

Finally, there's also a USB socket. This lets you playback photos and video from your digital media device, through your TV.

Further securing its advantage over its rivals, the Philips HDT8520 looks sensational. With its inset lid, seamless feet and crisp edges, the HDT8520 makes others look basic and crude alongside.

For a Freeview HD box with PVR that looks every bit as good as it performs, the Philips HDT8520 has all the answers.

GRADED/Factory Repack = mail order returns or ex-service products, thoroughly tested and re-sold with a 12 month guarantee.
