Halifax, NS – One of the most sought after home video improvements is now available to Eastlink customers -- playback from a single digital video recorder (DVR) to multiple TVs. Eastlink is among the first in North America to offer the service.
Eastlink Multi-Room DVR allows Digital TV customers to view DVR recordings on up to four different televisions. Cost of the service will be an additional $5 per month. In addition to allowing customers to view DVR recordings on multiple TVs, they can also pause, rewind, fast forward and resume programs on up to four TVs connected to the system.
"Multi-room DVR is the next generation of video entertainment service and the most frequently requested enhancement by our customers. It has changed the way consumers watch television," said Deborah Shaffner, Eastlink President and COO.
"We continue to invest heavily in capital improvements and equipment to provide the high quality products and services our customers have come to expect."
Eastlink has already launched Multi-Room DVR in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The service will be rolled out in other Eastlink markets across the country in the coming months.
