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 &
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.
