GMA Network has officially launched its Affordabox digital terrestrial television (DTT) receiver in celebration of the network’s 70th anniversary.
The GMA Affordabox is a plug-and-play device that can easily be connected to an analog TV (RCA and HDMI) in order to receive digital television broadcasts. Users can watch GMA, GMA News TV, and Heart of Asia in digital display, as well as all other free-to-air digital TV channels available in their area.
It comes with a built-in multimedia player that makes it an all-around digital file access device.
Another advanced function is its personal video recorder that allows viewers to record programs and shows.
The device also has a nationwide Emergency Warning Broadcast System (EWBS) that receives alerts from the NDRRMC about any calamity warnings in their area. It will automatically set off an alarm during emergencies with its auto-on alert feature.
The GMA Affordabox is available for a one-time purchase of P888 with no monthly fees. It is now for sale online (Shopee and Lazada) and in stores for the following areas where GMA’s digital signal is already available: Metro Manila, Benguet, La Union, Pangasinan, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Quezon, Rizal, Bohol, Cebu, Leyte, Davao de Oro, Davao del Sur, and Davao del Norte.
