Champions League: SFR unveils an Android 4K box to watch the matches
The operator SFR has unveiled a new offer called Connect TV. It is an Android 4K box offered at a price of 69 euros and giving access to various video services. With this Android box, the operator openly targets Champions League fans, but not only.
Football, SFR's marketing weapon
For several months, SFR has decided to no longer restrict its premium content to its subscribers alone. For example, it is possible to subscribe to the RMC Sport bouquet, which exclusively offers the broadcasting of flagship football competitions such as the Champions League, the Europa League and the Premier League, while being a Free or Orange subscriber.
To facilitate access to its channels, SFR has chosen the Android box. Thus, RMC Sport subscribers are not required to use a competing platform to access their favourite programmes. According to SFR, Connect TV is a "turnkey solution" providing access to:
- RMC Sport channels with the Champions League, Premier League and Europa League
- SFR Ciné-série package including SFR VOD and Altice Studio
- Later on, SFR Entertainment channels aimed primarily at young people and series lovers
On the occasion of the launch, subscription to RMC Sport entitles you to 1 month free of charge. You will have understood it, in addition to the 69 euros, it will be necessary to add a subscription up to 19 €/month without commitment. For the moment, the RMC Sport offer is available for 9 euros/month. As for the Cinema-series bouquet, it costs 10 €/month.
The technical characteristics of SFR's Android box
Such a device can transform any HDMI television into a Smart TV. The interface of the box does not deviate from that of Android TV 7.1 but adopts as expected the color code dear to SFR. Connect TV provides access to the Google Play Store and is compatible with Google Assistant.
Under the hood, there will be no high-performance components. It is a mid-range box like those found on Amazon and Chinese shops, but it still has the advantage of being compatible with the 4K (without HDR). Connect TV is equipped with:
- 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage that can be expanded to 32 GB via a Micro-SD card
- A WIFI compatible WIFI chip: 802.11ac /b/g/n 2x2 MIMO 2.4/5.8 GHz Wi-fi
- One HDMI 2.0a port
- An Amlogic S905X processor
