updated 11:30 am EDT, Thu May 3, 2012

EchoStar DVR has 500GB capacity, Freeview+ support

EchoStar has taken the wraps off what it calls the world's slimmest DVR. The HDT-610R is just over half an inch tall (14mm exactly) and houses a 500GB hard drive along with two tuners, allowing recording one shows while watching another. There is Freeview+ support that gives subscription-free access to 50 SD digital channels and four HD ones.

BBC's iPlayer is supported, as is BoxOffice365 on-demand content. Connections include HDMI, an Ethernet port and two USBs, along with an optical output for audio. When using the HDMI input, the box will upscale SD content.

The UK will get the DVR starting May 4, with pricing yet to be revealed. Whether it will be offered outside of the UK remains to be seen. [via SlashGear]
