Summary: I have had a satellite disk for years – so long in fact it predates Sky – however the box with it has long been faulty. Humax now have a service that installs a dish and your unit, when the installer arrived my original disk position was unsuitable because of trees in neighbouring gardens.
Excerpt: Being the first to market with a brand new type of product is always a risky business, but in our First Test of the FOXSAT-HD, we were confident that Humax had produced a very solid first entrant into the Freesat arena. Now it has direct competition – and our confidence has been proved correct. The FOXSAT-HD is a really brilliant product to use, and that cannot be underestimated as a plus point, particularly when you're talking about a totally new type of product.
Pros: Exceptionally smart and well-styled EPG and menu screens, pictures are clean and stable, HD performance is very impressive
Cons: Slight softness to SD picture and thin sound performance
Summary: For the many poor souls who still can’t get Freeview (incredibly, almost a quarter of the country) the only option for digital telly has been Sky – until now. Freesat, a joint venture between the BBC and ITV, offers subscription-free access to high-definition content for virtually the whole of the UK, and the Humax FOXSAT-HD is the first box that can pick up its signals.
