100 hour DirecTV DVR released by Samsung

The 120GB hard drive in the Samsung SIR-S4120R DIRECTV® DVR boasts 50% more storage capacity than most DVRs currently available on the market. This large hard drive is able to store up to 100 hours of DIRECTV® programming with TiVo® Service at an affordable price.

“With the NFL and college football seasons about to kickoff, Samsung’s SIR-S4120R is the must-have product for the fall,” offered Chris Cudina, Sales and Marketing Manager, Digital Set Top Box Group, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. “100 hours of storage time is enough to cover all of your favorite team’s games while still allowing the rest of the household to TiVo their favorite programs as well.”

Samsung’s SIR-S4120R DIRECTV® DVR puts the viewer in command, simultaneously recording programming onto the hard drive as you watch. While recording is taking place, any show – even a live game – can be paused for an unexpected break for up to 30 minutes without missing any of the action. The rewind, instant replay and slow motion playback features put sports fans in the control room and the Dual TV tuners allow users to record two shows at the same time or watch one show while recording another.

Our relationships with Samsung and TiVo are allowing us to do just that,” said Laura O’Donnell, vice president, Product Development, DIRECTV, Inc. “DIRECTV is not only a service provider, but also a lifestyle provider. With larger hard-drive receivers like the SIR-S4120R DIRECTV DVR, we can provide our customers with greater flexibility and control of their television viewing experience along with value-added enhancements like our NFL SUNDAY TICKET
