iView 3500STBIII ATSC High Definition Digital Terrestrial Receiver

Are you still holding on to your old analog TV? It’s quite functional and working perfectly fine, so an upgrade isn’t called for. Iview offers a practical and economical solution to households that rely on OTA broadcasts. Did you know you can tune in to basic stations for free? No strings attached, and by strings, we mean a set-top box and monthly subscriptions. By getting an iView digital converter box, you won’t have to replace your beloved analog TV. You may even get to see the local feeds in glorious HD!

The iView Digital Converter box automatically converts the signal to be compatible with your analog unit. Analog TV owners won’t need to get themselves a new TV if they don’t want to. The tuner box comes in with input holes for both analog and newer-type TVs.

The iView 3500STBIII has a built-in QAM tuner and supports Over-the-Air (OTA), which allows the user to receive some unencrypted digital cable channels, also known as “in-the-clear” channels. You can finally watch TV without needing additional set-top boxes or a monthly cable subscription.

Our iView 3500STBIII has passthrough capabilities via firmware to access analog channels in countries and areas where analog signals are still present. You can rely on the iView 3500STBIII to acquire the transmission and play it directly to your television set. Analog channels will still be accessible due to our converter boxes’ pass-through capability. Broadcasting is still alive and well, even in your old TV.

The iView 3500STBIII is not your ordinary converter box. It’s the ultimate entertainment hub! Ease of use, the comfort, and convenience it brings are awesome features that simplify life. Unbridled multi-media experiences, including video recording and playback, high definition luxury, backed by financial savings only make it even better. Cut out your expensive cable bills and upgrade your converter box to the very affordable iView 3500STBIII.
