FRITZ!Box Cable models, the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C and the FRITZ!App TV make up the perfect team for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. All of these devices transmit free-to-air digital TV programs from the cable connection directly to the PC, smartphone or tablet.
The FRITZ!Box 6590 Cable along with the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C are equipped with an integrated DVB-C tuner. One channel search suffices, and the devices detect free-to-air programs on cable television and stream them to the home network via wireless LAN. Please note, however: DVB-C streaming with FRITZ!Box Cable models is not available in every cable network. The dual TV tuner integrated in the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C allows the concurrent transmission of two different programs. With the FRITZ!Box Cable models, four different programs can be transmitted to various terminal devices.
For optimum playback on a smartphone or tablet, install the FRITZ!App TV for iOS and Android. With the app you benefit from a channel list, detailed program information, and a zoom feature, and can even switch channels. Since the FRITZ! products are compatible with the VLC media player, you can also receive television programs on your computer.
With the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C you can not only stream TV, but also extend the range of your home network – thanks to Mesh WiFi from FRITZ! This allows you to surf wirelessly even when you're further away from the FRITZ!Box, for instance, on another floor of your home. Since the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater DVB-C routes the TV signals received (including HD) via the wireless network, they can be transmitted all the way to the furthest corner of your home.
