unifi Plus Box unlocks exciting new offerings to residential customers.

RESIDENTIAL customers can now unlock a world of unlimited digital entertainment with the new unifi Plus Box – unifi’s first 4K Android-based box which will have access to all of unifi’s digital entertainment services.

This includes digital streaming channels, video-on-demand and interactive content.

With unifi Plus Box, unifi Home customers will also be able to view their preferred over-the-top (OTT) content by downloading their favourite apps from Google Play Store.

The move is aligned with unifi’s aspiration to continue offering customer-centric services focusing on delivering a more holistic entertainment experience.

Acting unifi executive vice-president Moharmustaqeem Mohammed explained, “The world of digital entertainment is getting increasingly fragmented with users having to choose between digital streaming and OTT content providers.

“Our goal with unifi Plus Box is to converge those entertainment options into a single, unified experience for the end-user in one TV box.”

Built on the latest Android TV Operating System (9.0 Pie), users will have seamless access to Google Play Store along with a full suite of apps available for download in Malaysia.

This will allow subscribers to use a single set-top box to view unifi’s digital streaming and interactive services which contain more than 80 channels and supplement their entertainment needs with additional OTT content providers.

Customers of the new unifi Plus Box will receive additional unifi playTV IDs to enjoy their favourite content at home or anywhere via unifi playTV app (available for Android and iOS devices).

Moharmustaqeem added, “By offering our digital streaming services via the unifi playTV app, we give our customers the flexibility to access our content on any Android TV or smartphone without having to purchase a second unit of the unifi Plus Box.

“Our primary intention is to enable experiences and go beyond what is expected of a traditional Internet service provider.”

On the technical side, the unifi Plus Box will feature a 4K UHD video resolution, Dolby Digital Plus audio decoder and pre-installed popular video codecs.

The Android Box features an AM Logic A53 Quad Core processor with 2GB DDR4 memory and an 8GB eMMC storage.

A highlight is the new graphical user interface which integrates Google Assistant (voice assistance) via a Bluetooth, infrared or Wi-Fi remote for easier navigation and use.

In addition, unifi Plus Box is the gateway to unifi enabling the Internet of Things (IoT), for example, by opening up the possibilities of having more connected devices in a home.

The unifi Plus Box with Ultimate Pack will be available for unifi Home 30Mbps and 100Mbps while new subscribers of unifi Home 300Mbps with Ultimate Pack will get access to five unifi playTV accounts targeted at homes with multi-devices (smartphones, tablets and soon on Smart TVs) and comes with six-month free access to Viu.
