The launch of REAL Digital has been delayed until the start of October. A start date of September 1 had previously been given. A Facebook page for the combined free to air and pay TV satellite service recently cited firmware problems with Fortec Star receivers as an issue.

Initially to be sold by Maplin, the Fortec Star Real Digital HD zapper box is currently in production and will be the first to go on sale priced £160. It will be followed by the Digital Stream Real HD+ PVR in November priced £300. Both were on show at the IBC show in Amsterdam this week. REAL Digital said further ‘premium’ receivers are likely to follow from as-yet-unnamed manufacturers. More hardware details and a launch date are expected to be announced at the end of the month.
