EE TV streaming set top box now available in UK

EE TV is now available to buy in the UK, marking the firm’s first foray into in-house set top box devices.

The box was announced last month, and offers up Freeview, On Demand, and Catch Up services across multiple platforms in your home.

That latter tidbit on info is the most important – up to four devices in a household can stream different programs via EE TV.

Pippa Dunn, Chief Marketing Officer at EE, said: “Customers can now go into any EE store nationwide and sign-up for the UK’s most advanced TV service.

“With EE TV, we have combined our expertise in mobile and home broadband to develop a game-changing home TV service that you can watch on your smartphone and tablet, as well as your telly,” Dunn explained.

“EE TV offers exceptional value for money, is simple to set up and use, and comes with market-leading features which really do allow customers to create a unique personal viewing experience.”

You can also simultaneously record across the four devices too, as the EE TV lands with 1TB of built-in storage good for around 600 hours of tele.

It’s also packing dual band Wi-Fi so you won’t need to clog up your living room with Ethernet cabling.

There’s upwards of 70 Freeview channels on offer, with the expected on demand fare available too – iPlayer and Wuaki, for example.

Unfortunately neither Netflix nor Amazon Instant Video made it into EE TV’s televisual roster, a dead cert to put die-hard TV nerds off.

Fortunately, EE promises north of 10,000 TV series and movies from On Demand and Catch Up, which should take even the most diligent popcorn-chompers a while to chew through.

There’s also the ‘touch and flick’ feature that lets you fling footage about between devices ‘with the simple flick of a finger’.

The EE TV box is apparently worth £300, but EE is bundling it with a bunch of plans that see the device start from £9.95 per month with a 17Mbps Broadband package.

You’ll also need to sign up to an 18 month contract, as well as shell out £15.75 a month for the required EE line rental.
