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 bought this having read reviews of similar products, most of which commented on software problems - freezing etc. I have had this item for a month now and it has performed perfectly. The installation was simple and the quality, particularly the HD channels, is superb.
Summary: We bought this after some careful research after some years as Sky free satellite viewers without HD. We wanted HD and continuing with Sky seemed both unduly complicated and potentially expensive.
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.
A good quality and reasonably priced Freesat receiver...

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: I already had the Humax HDR (with hard drive recorder) in the lounge, having experience with that I had no hesitation in ordering its' non-recordable stablemate for the bedroom. If you are considering "Freesat" - buy HUMAX.
Summary: 1. The reason I bought this was that it's a direct replacement for the Sky box - without fitting new aerials etc. 2. Upon set-up it couldn't find any Sat channels. 3. It found Freeview, but then refused to accept our UK based postcode.
Summary: I received this yesterday, and walked the dog whilst it stabilised to room temperature, then plugged it all in as per the manual. I have an existing Sky dish and used the cable from that. Set-up was painless, and very quick. It found all the regular/available Freesat channels and I'm loving it!
Summary: We bought this product because of the economic climate, as we were on Virgin before and paying for channels we weren't watching. We have a holiday home in Spain and bought this a few months ago to take over there. Because of the picture quality we decided to invest in one over here in the UK.
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.
