MyFreeview HD recorder heading to New Zealand

The Freeview service (or the HD aspect, at least) isn't having the easiest time gaining traction in New Zealand, but we're elated to see that there's enough dedication to the service to create this. As of December 11th, Freeview HD viewers in the country will be able to snap up a MyFreeview HD recorder, which holds a whopping 80-hours of HD footage or up to 240-hours of high-def content. It utilizes an eight-day EPG and contains twin tuners for watching one live show while recording another, but we still don't see any signs of fresh high-def channels to load it up with. Baby steps, baby steps.
