Configuring FRITZ!WLAN Repeater for television reception

The FRITZ!WLAN Repeater has a dual tuner for cable TV (DVB-C) that can transmit ("stream") two TV programs to network devices in the home network at the same time. Any tablet, smartphone or computer with a compatible media player (for example FRITZ!App TV, VLC media player) installed on it can be used to select and play programs. If the media player supports it, an electronic program guide, teletext, and the option to select subtitles and sound tracks are available in addition to playing the program.

  • A maximum of two different TV programs can be played on different network devices at the same time.
  • Encoded TV programs (for example private HD programs, pay TV) are not transmitted.
