Product description

In-Car Wireless Entertainment

Now you can keep your family entertained on long car journeys with this easy to install wireless in-car entertainment system. The system creates a wireless entertainment hub inside your car that can be connected to with a smartphone, tablet computer or laptop. You can then access the Freeview TV stream and watch live TV, or access the movies and music stored on the system and watch or listen.

If your family are accessing store movies and music then they can access content individually – no more arguments over who is watching what. Live TV works the same as in the home; you will all need to watch the same channel.

You can also use the system in your caravan or motorhome to keep you entertained whilst on holiday.

TV in Car

Access the full range of Freeview channels just like you would at home. Live TV can only be streamed to 1 smart device. Just install the app.

Multimedia Centre

Load your USB stick with movies, TV shows and music and connect up to 8 devices to watch or listen to their choice of content – no conflicts or arguments. Just install the app.

Automatic Recording

Use the built in Electronic Program Guide to schedule TV recordings.

Auto Start

The system starts up and becomes available as soon as you start the engine so you don’t need to worry about pressing buttons.

Flexible Solution

You can also watch TV and content outside the vehicle on a picnic if you are within range of the wireless signal.

No Subscription Required

You don’t need any ongoing subscriptions to use the system – but remember you do need to have a TV Licence to watch live TV in the UK.

2 Tuners for Good Reception

The system has two built-in tuners that work together to provide a reliable, clear TV signal on the move.

2 Rod Antennas

The rod antennas have a magnetic base that allows you easily place and remove them. They have been designed to pick up the TV signal reflected from the roof and have 360° coverage. Built in amplifiers provide the best possible signal.

Easy to Install

The TV Man system is easy to install and contains all necessary instructions. However, we do offer an installation service carried out at your home or work if you prefer. This costs an extra £80.
