Summary: I would this since the house we moved into already had a SKY dish but no box. Read the reviews and agree this is an excellent box. I suggest buying the one with a HD so you can record your TV shows. Use this every day with no problems.
Summary: I was very apprehensive ordering from the UK just in case this didn't work and returning same would be difficult if not impossible. However, I took the chance and ordered the Humax Digital Satellite Set Top Box - Freesat - Foxsat HD online on Wednesday, 10th October.

Summary: Humax Digital Satellite Set Top Box - Freesat - Foxsat HD I'd read several good reviews online for the Humax Foxsat HD and so I decided on this box as an upgrade to replace an old Ross satellite receiver I'd been using.

Summary: Despite being completely in the dark about these things I took the plunge and bought this box. We live in Spain and had Sky, but were becoming increasingly unhappy with the quality and reliability of reception and the decreasing number of available channels.
Summary: At 68 years of age I don't enjoy researching what I need to get UK television in the Algarve and, having done that, going through the process of setting the thing up.
