Good for those with poor/no freeview reception

KathDK, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Having decided to chose freesat because of the channels unavailable on freeview, I decided to buy this model as it was the first freesat product that had the recording capabilities. When I opened the packaging, I was really pleased with the look and build quality of the box. Plugging in the box was simple and the only input needed was the postcode in order to configure regional channels correctly. The next option is clicking next to set up the box fully.

Excellent freesat box, great user interface.

  • Excerpt: I have had my Humax freesat box for about 2 years now. The reason I bought it was to save money and get rid of Sky, I was finding I was only watching mostly free to air channels anyway, so was a bit daft spending money on a Sky subscription each month. The Humax Freesat box uses the same dish as my Sky box did so no need to put up a new dish, all I had to do was open the box and connect the cables, setup was very easy too, it was just a matter of entering your postcode...

A Potentially Great Box let Down by its Software

MatP2, Ciao
23 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought the Humax because of three main features. 1. It’s free! Once you’ve paid just over £100 for the box itself anyway. There’s no hideously expensive Sky contract or anything here. The humax lets you watch freesat channels which - funnily enough - are free. You get all the big channels that you’d ever want to watch (all the BBCs, all the channel 4s including film 4, the ITVs and so on) and countless more small channels (CBS action and Dave etc.).
  • Pros: Record/rewind is great when it works .  Huge hard drive .
  • Cons: Software bugs can be very annoying .  iPlayer doesn't always work .

  • Excerpt: Price I remember purchasing mine from eBay a couple of years ago for around £180, however it looks be more cheaper now pricing from the £109 mark. My Experience I remember purchasing mine when sky/Virgin prices were quite high and of course required a monthly reoccurring payment which at the time just meant more unnecessary expenses.
  • Pros: Easy fast setup, very simple to use, pause, play, rewind, over 100 channels, records .
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Well pleased with this unit, easy to use menus only down side is that although BBC Iplayer and ITV player are shown as active, I can only get BBC Iplayer.

Quality product

  • Summary: I used to be a Sky subscriber to get satellite TV. What a waste of money! The Humax does the job far better than my Sky Box with NO monthly subscription. I've linked to the internet using Home plugs so can access i-player etc on my older "non-smart" TV.
