  • Summary: If there weren’t a ban on hunting with dogs, Murdoch himself would be dressed up like a toff and stalk this crafty fox. It’s cheaper and greener than the Sky HD service, with a huge hard drive, great connections and brilliant audiovisuals.

Humax FOXSAT-HDR: subscription-free HDTV heaven?

HEXUS
17 April 2009
  • Conclusion: There are a number of compelling reasons for users to opt for Freesat and the Humax FOXSAT-HDR. If you're unable to retrieve digital terrestrial, want a number of free-to-air digital channels, have an unused satellite dish lying around, or just find yourself craving for free HD material, it could be the perfect choice. Indeed, the only major stumbling block preventing us from making an outright recommendation is the FOXSAT-HDR's £300 asking price.

Humax Foxsat-HDR

What Hi-Fi?
19 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Let's just cut to the chase, shall we? This, the longest-serving Freesat PVR, remains the finest around. It's built and styled to a higher standard than any rival, delivers palpably the best picture and sound quality in this test, and it'll even stream BBC iPlayer (albeit only in beta form at present). Of course, the Humax Foxsat-HDR isn't flawless.
  • Pros: Fantastic picture and sound, superb usability, class-leading style and build, iPlayer support
  • Cons: Some rivals offer larger hard-disks for this money

Humax Foxsat HDR review

Stuff.tv
16 December 2008
  • Summary: It hasn't been an easy birth for Freesat HD. Billed as the non-subscription high-def alternative to the satellite offerings from Sky and Virgin Media, the service has proved something of a slow-burner due to some average tuner boxes and a dearth of HD content. What we’d like is a level of functionality to match Sky+ HD and, if the Foxsat HDR’s specs list is anything to go by, it might just be the affordable rival we’ve been hoping for.
