Huawei, the leading information and communications technology company, today announced it has selected Exertis Micro-P as the sole UK distributor for its new DN371T set-top box – the YouView+ box by Huawei.
The agreement builds on the two companies’ existing relationship, having partnered on the Server, Storage and Networking products within the Huawei portfolio. Exertis Micro-P’s extensive market knowledge and experience makes them the perfect company to work with Huawei to further develop its position within the home entertainment sector.
The YouView+ box by Huawei is an entirely new generation set-top box, offering seamless integration between digital, terrestrial, and internet television. The box includes a 500GB YouView highdefinition personal video recorder that can record up to 300 hours of standard and 125 hours of HD programmes.
The YouView+ box is available for a one-off cost as standard, allowing customers access to a host of digital channels without the constraints of a binding contract. The option to upgrade and receive additional content from BT or TalkTalk, for BT and TalkTalk broadband customers, is also available for an additional cost.
Huawei UK and Ireland Executive Vice President Mark Mitchinson said of the partnership: “Huawei’s technology continues to be at the centre of the developments in British television viewing. For the distribution of this latest device, we wanted to work with a company that has strong market experience and we are thrilled to have Exertis Micro-P on board to realise its full potential and market demand.”
Daniel Lenan, Head of Commercial at Exertis Micro-P states: “This latest launch represents another step forward in terms of developing our portfolio with an extremely progressive technology company committed to delivering exciting new product propositions for the market.“
