The second update is BeoRemote. BeoRemote is a free app for the Apple iPad that let users control all features of the TV from their touch-enabled tablet. BeoRemote offers an overview of TV channels and let users playback content from the iPad or a network hard drive (NAS).

The third update is HbbTV that will be available in select Europeans countries that have rolled out the internet-enabled on-demand HbbTV services. The HbbTV update is available through the TV’s update menu.

Beoplay V1 was launched in May 2012 and is the first TV in the new, cheaper B&O Play line of products. Find our BeoPlay V1 review here.
