Panasonic Voted Best Freeview Approved Brand1st June 2012     By: Panasonic Media

Panasonic has been voted as the Best brand of Freeview® Approved Products in New Zealand at the 2012 Freeview Awards.

2012 marks the third annual Freeview Awards, and this year it was run in conjunction with the TV Guide magazine's Best on the Box competition, with over 14,000 votes collected online & by post across the country.

The Awards celebrate all aspects of New Zealand free-to-air digital television and Freeview, including the first-rate work of the eighteen manufacturers of top-quality FreeviewApproved Products, such as Panasonic.

The range of Freeview Approved Panasonic Products considered by voters includes Panasonic TVs with Freeview|HD® built in as well as Panasonic MyFreeview® Digital Recorders, which have been tested and approved by Freeview to ensure that the products deliver to New Zealand free-to-air digital TV standards and have the following features:

  • Automatically scans for new channels as these become available on the Freeview platforms in New Zealand;
  • Access to the 8-day Freeview on-screen programme guide;
  • Automatically receives over-the-air software upgrades to ensure the product is kept up-to-date post-purchase;
  • Access to interactive TV functions;
  • Parental controls as well as warranty / service guarantee & support.

The high level of attention to detail in design and the usability of Panasonic's range of Freeview Approved Products are some of the reasons why voters selected Panasonic above others.
