Streaming TV signals wirelessly in the home network
The FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C and FRITZ!App TV are an ideal match, whose great potential is revealed only when used in combination. The DVB-C tuner integrated in the repeater feeds the free-to-air cable TV signals received at the TV jack into the home network, in SD or even HD quality, and transmits them wirelessly. With the app you receive the data on your smartphone and tablet and watch TV.
Extending the wireless network
This technology makes for improvements on several levels: Through the repeater function you extend the reception area of your wireless network. This allows you to surf wirelessly even further away from the FRITZ!Box, for instance, on another floor of your home, or out on the patio. Since the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C passes on the data received from the free-to-air cable connection (even in HD), the TV signals are also transmitted all the way to the furthest edges of your reception area.
It is child's play to configure the repeater in just a few simple steps. The connection to the FRITZ!Box is set up either by pressing the WPS button or using the browser on a PC or laptop. Just enter fritz.repeater in the address line and begin configuration. This is even easier for FRITZ!App TV: Simply download it from the app or play store appropriate for your device.
Also possible on the computer
With the app you can switch channels and even take advantage of channel list, detailed program information and a zoom feature. You can also watch television on a notebook or computer using the free VLC media player program. That means you can watch TV in your own home network – in either the 2.4 or 5-GHz network. With the gigabit LAN port on the repeater you can also add devices without a WiFi function of their own to your wireless network. FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C and FRITZ!App TV let you watch television anywhere in the home network, granting you even more flexibility and mobility.
