Samsung has just launched it’s DirecTV DVR with TiVo recorder, the SIR-S4120R, capable of storing up to 100 hours of programming.
The 120GB hard drive in the Samsung SIR-S4120R DirecTV DVR has 50% more storage capacity than most DVRs currently available on the market. This large hard drive is able to store up to 100 hours of DIRECTV programming with TiVo Service.
Samsung’s SIR-S4120R DirecTV DVR simultaneously record programming onto the hard drive as you watch. While recording is taking place, any show – even a live game – can be paused for an unexpected break for up to 30 minutes without missing any of the action. The rewind, instant replay and slow motion playback features put consumers in control and the Dual TV tuners allow users to record two shows at the same time or watch one show while recording another.
The SIR-S4120R DirecTV DVR with TiVo provides consumers with freedom to personalize how they watch television. Features like Season Pass™ allow viewers to record an entire season of their favorite show with a few clicks of the remote. And the WishList™ feature lets viewers tell TiVo to search for programs that feature their favorite actor, director, sports team or interest.
The SIR-S4120R DirecTV DVR features optical Dolby Digital output and two USB expansion ports for future home entertainment services and will be available at the start of September for $499. The DirectTV with TiVo service monthly subscription fee is $4.99 and will be free to customers subscribing to the TOTAL CHOICE PREMIER package.
Beginning September 14, consumers will be eligible for a $30 rebate when purchasing Samsung’s SIR-S4120R DirectTV DVR. This promotion will be available through the holiday shopping period at participating retailers and will end December 28, 2003.
