Live ultra HD sports now available with TSN 4K
MONTREAL, March 21, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Cogeco Connexion is proud to introduce a new TiVo 4K PVR allowing its customers in Quebec and Ontario to access ultra-high-definition programming, for an even better television entertainment experience.
"This evolution in our offering is consistent with our ongoing commitment to better meet the changing needs of our customers, who are adopting 4K technology in ever greater numbers," noted Daniel Boisvert, Vice President, Marketing and Innovation at Cogeco Connexion. "We have always made our customers' needs our top priority and we are proud to enhance their television entertainment experience."
Customers can now enjoy an ultra-high-definition image with four times the resolution of high-definition TV, with four times the level of detail, allowing much higher frame rates, enhanced colour and wider dynamic range.
To fully benefit from the 4K experience, customers can now subscribe to the TiVo 4K service, a multi-TV receiver making it possible to record up to six programs simultaneously as well as view online content thanks to direct access to Netflix. The device also offers the flexibility to access content not only on TV but also on tablets and smart phones, anywhere in and out of the home.
Cogeco Connexion is also launching TSN 4K, providing 4K coverage of live sports action featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC and more. New 4K channels will be added to the Cogeco Connexion portfolio in the coming weeks. Customers can also access 4K content from over-the-top providers such as Netflix.
