Nuvola TV-U1 Adds Broadcast 4K Upscaling to 4K NP-1 set top box

There are a few devices on the market today that will get you 4K programming if you have a 4K television in your home. One of those devices comes from a company called Nuvola and is known as the NP-1. The set top box is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra chipset and has 2GB of RAM. It also has 16GB of internal storage.

Nuvola has announced a new accessory today that will let users of the 4K media streamer add the ability to view 4K broadcast television content on their TV. The accessory is called the Nuvola TV-U1. The device is about the size of a flash drive and is designed to plug into the USB port on the NP-1 set top box.

The device has a digital tuner for picking up over the air broadcasts and supports unencrypted cable channels as well. The programming the tuner picks up can be upscaled automatically to 4K resolution for viewers to enjoy. The TV-U1 device is available for $99.99.

“Priced at just $99, the TV-U1 TV Tuner when added to the Nuvola NP-1 will provide consumers with a cost-effective alternative to paying for cable or satellite TV by delivering a variety of network channels,” said NanoTech CEO Jeff Foley. “For added value, the software bundled with the new tuner also delivers the convenience of a fully-functional DVR that makes it easy to watch, timeshift and record the broadcast television channels.” An integrated Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) is included that provides automatic station searching as well as the ability to create favorite stations and schedule recordings for later viewing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
