Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting – Terrestrial (ISDB-T) is the most advanced international standard on Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcasting (DTTB) system originally developed in Japan. A long list of expertise and specializations only makes a company a trustworthy player on the ever-evolving and competitive markets.
Coupled with its commitment to provide premium solutions, ISDB-T Philippines has a complete arsenal guaranteed to help new and old businesses maximize their potential in becoming big names in various industries. Now, it introduces the Win Set Top Box. An antenna-based converter designed to deliver similar services as a CAT-V or a TV Box.
The set is comprised of the converter, a remote, and an 860 MHZ antenna. It also includes a user manual for troubleshooting and installation. There are three channels: ABS-CBN, GMA, and ABS-CBN Sports upon initial scanning. We tested the product in Mandaluyong City, but expect to have a different set of channels depending on your location.
The set is also has the following features: PVR, EPG, HD-Ready, Time Shift, and a USB port. The entire set is pretty basic, but it is definitely a leap from your standard antenna with a lot of static in the signal. The antenna detects an RF signal so it is neither analog nor digital.
We did another test this time in Pasig City and we got more channels – TV5, Aksyon TV, Catsup TV, GMA, GMA News TV, UNTV, ADD TV, ABS-CBN, ABS-CBN Sports + Action, Shop TV, O Shopping on Beam, TV Shop, GCTV, Shop Japan, Inquirer 990 TV, Island Living Channel, BEAM, Hope Philippines, 3ABN, Hope International Channel. Channels like Yey, Knowledge Channel, KBO, DZMM Teleradyo are not available on this TV box because it is exclusively encrypted to ABS-CBN TV Plus.
So far, we are very impressed with the Win Set Top Box. You can grab one for P1,799 on Lazada or at their shop in Manila. If you wish to end your monthly cable bills and you are just happy watching free-to-air channels, then the Win Set Top Box is just right for you.
