Is called Vodafone TVPlay, and it is the new TV Box presented by Vodafone in Portugal. This differs from the operator’s previous offerings as it offers much more than just the TV service.
To begin with, this commitment to the Android TV operating system. This means that users now have access to all the apps available on Google Play directly from the carrier’s Box, such as a video and music streaming app.
New Vodafone Box can be controlled with Google Assistant in Portuguese
Because it has Android TV, it also has Google’s personal assistant in European Portuguese. In this way, users can dispense with the remote and use only their voice to search and access entertainment, get answers, control TV and smart devices at home, as well as plan their day.
“Hey Google, turn off the TV” is just one of the examples of voice commands that can be given. You can also search for specific titles or ask the assistant to suggest what to watch next with the “Hey Google, what should I watch?” command.
Vodafone TV Play has a Bang & Olufsen audio system
It has an image up to 4K/UHD and HDR, and incorporates Dolby Atmos technology. But the most differentiating thing is the fact that it has an audio system optimized by Bang & Olufsen. So you can expect an immersive, surround sound experience straight from the Box.
In addition to being part of your television’s sound system, this new Vodafone Box can also be used as a speaker to listen to music individually. To do so, simply connect your smartphone via Bluetooth or Google Cast, over Wi-Fi, and listen to music directly on it. And the TV doesn’t even need to be on.
“Vodafone TV PLAY is more than a TV Box, it is a new simple and compact concept of future entertainment in every room, with surround sound, more personalized and intelligent”, says Inês Valadas, Manager of Vodafone’s Private Business Unit. Portugal.
All Vodafone television customers will be able to have this Box at home, and it will cost €5 per month in this launch phase. Vodafone TV Play will be included free of charge in the Fibra Super Serie Packages.
