New Delhi, India – Bharti Airtel, India’s leading integrated telecom services provider, has launched an integrated digital video recorder (DVR) service with NDS XTV technology. NDS’ XTV DVR technology will enhance the viewing experience by allowing Bharti Airtel digital TV subscribers to pause, record, play back, rewind and fast forward their favourite programmes for viewing when they choose. Viewers can record one TV show while playing another, or record both simultaneously with the capacity to record up to 100 hours of programming on a 160 GB hard disk. Viewers can easily build and manage their own personal playlist using the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) developed by NDS. The Bharti DVR features for the first time in India, a downloadable electronic programme guide (EPG) for use on a mobile phone, to remotely record programmes on the DVR; an ethernet port providing a return path for two-way interactive applications in the future; and a choice of five different themes so subscribers can customise the look-and-feel of their EPG, including children’s and festival themes.
