Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy your favourite programmes whenever you’re ready for them thanks to the BDF8500’s fusion of on demand services and Freeview recorders. With an integrated Twin Freeview HD Tuner, the BDF8500 gives you the power to record two programmes at the same time, or record one and enjoy another, meaning it’ll be hard to miss any of your favourite programmes. If you do happen to miss any of your favourites then the comprehensive collection of On-demand services are available through Samsung’s Smart TV platform. This not only gives you access to BBC iPlayer, Demand 5, 4OD and ITV player but also allows you to stream content from your mobile device or PC to enjoy on the big screen. On top of all this, the BDF8500 is a brilliant 3D Blu-Ray player, providing sharp and vibrant images from all of your Blu-ray collection. It also has the ability to play 3D Blu-ray, bringing your favourite films and programmes to life in a way never before seen.

The BD-F8500M puts you in control of your entertainment. Enjoy the stunning clarity of Blu-ray, the spectacle of full HD 3D – and never miss any of your favourite programmes thanks to Samsung’s Smart Hub and its full catch-up service. And more – with the built in 500GB hard drive you can record whatever you want, when you want. The dual tuner lets you record two shows at once, and schedule recordings well into the future.

It makes it easy to record a whole season series, even in HD, and watch it all in a single session!
