Humax Announces 1st Product Lineup
TWICE via NewsEdge Corporation : SANTA ANA, CALIF.— Humax USA, new subsidiary of a leading South Korean set-top box manufacturer, recently announced it will carry four TiVo personal video recorder set-tops, and a line of LCD TVs with integrated live pause and rewind functionality.
The company said it will ship in June two standalone TiVo Series 2 set-top personal video recorders — one incorporating an 80GB hard drive (model T800) at a $299 suggested retail, and the other stepping up to a 250GB hard drive (model T2500) at a $699 suggested retail.
TiVo service subscriptions for program guide data will be available at rates of $12.95 per month or $299 lifetime.
The company said that Tweeter and The Good Guys were among the first major dealers to sign on to carry the TiVo product line at launch.
Later in the year, Humax will introduce TiVo-powered combination DVD recorders/PVRs with 80-hour (model DRT-800) and 250-hour (model DRT-2500) hard-drive storage capacities, at suggested retail prices of $599 and $999, respectively.
Purchasers will have the option of taking TiVo's free basic programming service or stepping up to a more robust service at the above-mentioned rates.
As for the future, Richard Martens, Humax national product line manager, said the company "is looking at offering HDTV TiVo recorders in 2005" and continues to talk with satellite and cable TV providers for possible combination products.
