Don’t miss anything this Fall TV season!: Videotron brings customers state-of-the-art technology with its new illico X8 set-top box
MONTRÉAL — Vidéotron continues releasing its wave of new technology for the new TV season with the brand-new X8 multi-room HD PVR, designed to continue delivering the best entertainment experience available today.
Packed with new features, including the ability to record eight programs at the same time, the X8 is a technological cut above the rest, taking the television viewing experience to the next level for every member of the family. Just in time for the new television season—no one needs to miss their favourite show ever again!
X8 multi-room HD PVR in a nutshell:
- Record up to eight shows simultaneously: no more arguments, no more heart wrenching choices!
- Store up to 2 terabytes: keep your favourite TV shows for as long as you want.
- 4x more powerful processor: zip through the catalogue, no more lag!
50 years of technological leadership
“At Videotron, our objective is clear: to anticipate our customers’ expectations and offer them the best multi-screen television entertainment experience on the market,” said Myrianne Collin, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Marketing. “With the release of the X8 set-top box, Videotron is offering its customers the very best technology and demonstrating its leadership once again as it celebrates 50 years of innovation.”
For the back-to-school season, Videotron continues to innovate. The arrival of the X8 comes just a few weeks after the revamping of Videotron’s residential Internet access services under the “Fibre Hybrid” name and a few months after the launch of the new illico app for the iPad, a major Canadian first entirely designed and developed in Québec. By year’s end, Videotron will introduce further technological improvements to close out its 50th birthday on a high note.
