Bush Internet TV IBX200

Bush Internet was a joint venture between Alba (80%) and Virgin (20%); created specifically to sell simple "one button connect", low cost, mass market Internet devices aimed at the average person in the street. The various devices they jointly launched included, Internet enabled TV and external set top boxes which enable a colour TV to become Internet connected. Pace designed the Internet Surf Set for Bush. It is OS is based on NCOS from the Acorn Network Computers. It has an IR Keyboard, remote control and a built-in 33.6k modem.

The IBX200 is a redesigned IBX100 with a much improved motherboard layout and a VCR out SCART port so that it can be used with a TV and VCR. A full infrared keyboard is also included instead of the remote control supplied with the IBX100. Functionally the IBX200 is identical to the IBX100.
