About Multi room

With Multi Room you can watch a TV programme that comes
from another TV in your home. The programme is streamed
from one TV to the other. You can stream a programme to a
TV that has no antenna connection or has no Smart card
subscription of its own. You can also stream a recorded
programme from a TV with a connected Hard Drive.
The TV that streams the programme to the other TV, must be
switched on and must tune to the channel or play the recording.
Streaming a TV programme with Multi Room will reduce the
picture resolution to 720p maximum. You cannot stream radio
channels. Some broadcasters protect their programmes to
prevent this kind of streaming.
