The Panasonic HWT250 is a HDD recorder which can unlock a wealth of great entertainment to the TV screen. Complete with 4K video playback, Freeview Play, TV Anywhere and even access to the Internet, you’ll be able to watch and record entertainment as it suits.
Freeview is a free television service that delivers over 50 TV Channels, and 24 digital radio channels via a terrestrial TV aerial. You receive these TV/radio signals from your aerial via equipment that has the Freeview digital tuners built inside like TV’s and set top boxes. The Freeview+HD service delivers 10 HD Channels including: BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV 1HD and Channel 4.
This Panasonic player features Freeview Play. Combining catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television, watching what you want, when you want, is now easier than ever. It’s free from subscription and is compatible with existing broadband services too. Enjoy an 8-day forward and 7-day backward programme guide, and keep track of your shows from one screen.
Please note: The firmware upgrade that enables Freeview Play scroll back has taken place. By making sure the unit is connected to the internet, it will get the upgrade & any subsequent ones required for additional functionality.
4K Video Playback & Archiving

Furthermore, with Panasonic’s Long Record feature, you can record up to 684 hours of HD content and even keep track of a show with the series link function. This way, you’ll never miss anything.
