Published

on

We now know what the Hubbl device and TVs will cost after tonight’s launch in Sydney.

Hubbl Glass will start at A$1,595 for the 55 inch screen, rising to A$1,995 for the 65 inch model. If you use your own TV, the plug-in device will cost you A$99. Hubbl products will be sold through Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi retail stores nationally and via Hubbl.com.au

Hubbl Glass comes in five colours

“Hubbl is a unique product that simplifies the TV and streaming experience so you can spend less time searching for something to watch and more time enjoying the content you love,” said Dani Simpson, Executive Director of Hubbl.

“We’re proud to partner with leading retailers Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi to help us reach customers in-store right across the country in addition to having our own digital shopfront at Hubbl.com.au.” 

WHAT IS HUBBL?

Hubbl Interface

Hubbl is essentially an entertainment operating system that aggregates local and global content including premium entertainment and sports, video on demand (VOD), live channels and the internet into a simplified user interface. 

Hubbl itself, does not require a subscription.

“Hubbl stands out from the pack by offering live TV without an aerial, seamless subscription management at the touch of a button, more discoverability and personalisation as well as allowing customers to stack up to five eligible streaming apps and save up to $15 per month on their subscriptions,” said Les Wigan, Managing Director of Hubbl.

“With the major free and paid apps available on Hubbl and more to come, there is nothing like the world of entertainment it unlocks.” 

Hubbl is available as a small device (think Apple TV) that plugs into any compatible TV. But the interesting part of this Foxtel operation is baking Hubbl into new TVs – Hubbl Glass.

The 55″ and 65″ panels are 4K Ultra HD | Quantum Dot Displays | hands-free voice control | six powerful speakers built-in for 360° Dolby Atmos surround sound. They come in five colours (Anthracite Black, Ocean Blue, Racing Green, Dusky Pink and Ceramic White).

The universal remote also comes equipped with select app buttons at the top to navigate straight to Kayo Sports, BINGE and Netflix as well as a Watchlist (+) button to seamlessly add content you want to watch later to your own personalised profile.

These are essentially Internet TVs.

On-sale date for Hubbl will be announced soon.
