FreeviewPlus comes to Samsung TVs

Samsung’s range of TVs now support Catch Up TV

Samsung is the latest manufacturer to become FreeviewPlus certified. Its range of smart TVs, including its newly released SUHD, 4K models, will allow users to access Catch Up services through the interface of the TV.

This will provide a more seamless ‘hybrid TV’ experience for users wishing to catch up on free-to-air shows they may have missed live. The Catch Up services include ABC’s iView, SBS On Demand, Ten’s TenPlay, Seven’s 7Plus, and Nine’s JumpIn. Previously, these services could be accessed primarily via computers or mobile devices, and a select few FreeviewPlus-certified TVs and a set-top box.

Samsung Electronics Australia’s head of content for smart TVs, Evan Manolis, said in a press release that the decision to become FreeviewPlus certified was a ‘straightforward’ one.

The certification adds value to the smart TV experience for Samsung’s models, especially for users who are currently in the market for a new TV and are comparing features.

With FreeviewPlus, content can be viewed, browsed, searched, and marked as favourite, and recommendations on what to watch are also given.

The FreeviewPlus-certified TVs will be available from the major retailers, including Bing Lee, The Good Guys, David Jones, Myer, Dick Smith, Harvey Norman, and JB Hi-Fi. A good Internet connection is required.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
