    Divx-capable DVD player with Freeview tuner: Under £42

    Divx-capable DVD player with Freeview tuner: Under £42 29th May 07 at 11:01 AM
    What's the deal?

    Currently, an MPEG4 Compatible DVD (Divx) Player with Freeview is available from web retailer SVP for under £42, (including delivery) when purchased using Google Checkout which gives a £10 reduction (more about this method below).

    Seperately, the cheapest DivX players and Freeview boxes are around £25 and £20 respectively, before factoring in delivery costs; thus if you're thinking about upgrading to have both of these features, this all-in-one box is worth considering.

    But what does it do?

    Right ok let me explain.
    • It's multi-region. This means the DVD Player that can plays discs from anywhere in the world.
    • It's Divx. This means it also allows downloaded media files (audio, video, photo) to be played on your TV from either a self made CD/DVD recordable compilation or you can plug in SD, MMC or Memory Stick cards; or a USB hard drive to be played too.
    • It's Freeview. Additionally, the Freeview component enables digital TV access, so if your area receives the Freeview signal (you can check your coverage on the Freeview website) you'll gain up to 30 extra channels and 20 radio stations.
    How to get your hands on one

    The Umax DVD-7600XTV DivX/DVD Player With DVB-T (Freeview) Tuner can be purchased online at SVP. When viewing your cart, be sure to pick the UK Mainland & IOW / Economy Courier delivery option, as this is cheapest, at £4.99.

    To receive the £10 reduction, simply click the 'Pay by Google Checkout' button. Then either sign into your Google account, or register for a free one (it'll ask you if you want to) if you haven't already done so. After that, it's easy to make your payment, and you'll get the nice £10 discount (for more info about the Google offer, take a look at this forum thread.)

    Alternatively, for those who live near Devon, there is the option of collecting in person from the warehouse, saving £5 delivery if you're likely to be nearby.
