With the newly supported Freeview Play function you will be able to watch TV programmes from the last seven days. You can watch drama, news, sports and other programmes that you missed while you were away from home, without even having to record them. They're ready for you to watch when you're ready to watch.
A Freeview Play button has been added to the remote control.This gives you one-touch access to the popular Freeview Play catch-up service.
Since it has two tuners, the PWT-550 can record two different programmes at once. So there’s no need to worry about missing anything when two programmes overlap.
Your Panasonic Blu-ray recorder can now bring the ever-expanding world of stunningly detailed 4K content* into your home.As well as upscaling Blu-ray to 4k*,it lets you record 4K content* onto its built-in HDD and view 4K video recorded to SD card by Panasonic LUMIX cameras and camcorders.
