The new decoder will also support 4K transmissions. 4K is a new system that uses a greater number of pixels (3840 × 2160) than standard Full HD (1920×1080 pixels). In addition to the announcement that its new generation of decoders will support voice recognition technology Telenet has also announced that like its rival Proximus, its customers are now able to subscribe to Netflix via its digital television platform.
The new decoder will be tested by 20,000 so-called “friendly user” customers over the next few months. These are customers that have agreed to give the company feedback on its products.
After the trial the new decoder will become available to all of the company's customers that want it.
