Bush Australia to supply Freeview EPG Digital Set Top Boxes
20 August 2010: Bush Australia is today delighted to announce the launch of their digital set top box ranges with the new Freeview Electronic Program Guide (Freeview EPG).
The new Bush Freeview High Definition Digital Set Top Box (DFTA50FVE) and the Grundig Freeview High Definition Digital Set Top Box (GSTB4101FVE) will go on sale at leading consumer electronic outlets through-out Australia including Harvey Norman, Big W, Retravision and David Jones from 20th August.
Both of these products will feature the new Freeview EPG which will make it easier for consumers to schedule their viewing on the full suite of Freeview channels. The products will carry the new Freeview EPG logo making it easy for consumers to differentiate from other non EPG set top boxes.
The Bush and Grundig range of Freeview High Definition Digital Set Top Boxes will be feature packed with special benefits such as; easy to use navigation, ability to schedule program reminders, up to the minute detailed channel and program information and Parental Control. Also it will allow users to continue watching TV while navigating the EPG (with a window in the top right corner).
Daniel Todd, Managing Director of Bush Australia said: “We think the development by Freeview of this new EPG is fantastic and we are behind it 100%. It will change how and when consumers watch free-to-air TV. With our range of Set Top Boxes, and soon to be released Twin Tuner PVR’s, they will be able to enjoy all the benefits of free television, for a once only purchase price and no ongoing subscriptions.”
Freeview CEO Ms Robin Parkes said: “Freeview is very pleased to be able to continue our excellent working relationship with Bush.
“The Freeview team and all our network partners have worked very hard to bring our EPG to Australian viewers. Bush has been wonderful to work with in what has been a very productive, collaborative experience”.
The Freeview EPG began transmission on the 28th of June 2010.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
