Just in time for the Easter holiday break, HUMAX has added PlayJam gaming to its popular H3 Espresso Smart Media Player, providing hours of additional entertainment for the whole family, streamed to any room in the house.
Launched at the end of 2016, the HUMAX H3 Espresso delivers aerial-free, multi-room TV anywhere in the home via the owner’s wireless network, without the need for extra sockets or tuners. With the addition of PlayJam, families can now enjoy more than 200 exciting interactive titles from the PlayJam library, fully optimised for play on the big screen.
From Prince of Persia 2 to Reckless Getaway, PlayJam offers an ever-growing catalogue of fun and affordable content, so players will discover an unlimited selection to choose from, bringing hours and hours of amusement for both children and adults. In addition to free-of-charge games, a host of paid content will also be available for purchase at exceptionally reasonable, family-friendly prices.
With the PlayJam App (Apple and Android versions available), all games can be controlled fully from a smartphone or tablet. The platform is designed from the ground up to be safe and suitable for family consumption, through extensive parental control features.
The HUMAX H3 Espresso is extremely easy to set up and install. The user simply plugs it into the HDMI port on any HD TV, connects to the home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable following the step-by-step guide, and the player is ready to use in a matter of minutes – with no further wires and no additional subscriptions or fees required.
In addition to PlayJam, pre-installed apps and services include Netflix*, YouTube and TVPlayer**, delivering a multitude of fantastic streamed programmes, series, films and other content that can be enjoyed on-demand, any time, in any location in the home.
Graham North, vice president sales at HUMAX, said, “We’re thrilled to be able to bring a host of fantastic gaming content to owners of our H3 Espresso to keep the whole family entertained throughout the Easter break, Bank Holiday weekends and beyond. Whether playing together as a family in one room, or streaming to the kids’ bedrooms so they can keep themselves amused, PlayJam adds a new dimension to the H3 Espresso. With this new service, we’re boosting the choice of high quality entertainment already available to stream via the device – so there’s something for everyone available on demand, any time of day.”
Anthony Johnson, CEO at PlayJam Ltd, added, “As one of the leading global set-top box manufacturers, HUMAX is at the forefront of innovation centred around the connected living room. PlayJam, an established distributor of digital content, is delighted to be rolling out its next generation entertainment platform with HUMAX, providing a comprehensive range of education and gaming content at launch, with a planned roll out of OTT video services in Q2 designed to appeal to the whole family, and bridge the gap between TV and YouTube.”
