Summary: The on Demand content only had BBCi Player. The ITV Player does not work. On the whole its ok. Wish I had got the HDR 1000S Model. as this is include freetime and much more on demand content. I got a used model and it did not include any instructions.
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.

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.

Pros: Easy fast setup, very simple to use, pause, play, rewind, over 100 channels, records .

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.
