*** ALERT Very long review, hope you can make it through and I do appreciate it if you do :O) *** I am a former Sky TV customer but after some serious cost-cutting a few years ago I did not see the need to pay for a multitude of channels I did not have time to watch. Don't worry you still get the...

Consa little expensive.

In April 2009 I bought a set of LG HD TV and really enjoyed it. As I wrote on my review about the TV the picture and the sound were very good. However I was told I can't watch HD programs without a HD receiver. After some serious search on internet I decided to give Humax Foxsat-HDR a go. Now...

I've been a subscriber or Sky and I'm currently a Virgin customer. I used to have Sky+ but got rid of Sky with the internet being completely crap through them. So I moved to Virgin and got their V+ box and for a good while I was happy. However after a while I realise that I wasn't really watching...

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...

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...

If, like me, you begrudge paying monthly for the recording features a Sky+ box offers and have suffered unreliability issues with budget PVR/DVR alternatives such as Thomson, this piece of kit could be what you're looking for.

With Freeview unavailable in my area and my unwillingness to pay a premium for content from sky, i had little other option than to buy a Freesat box. After much research and trepidation the general consensus seemed to be that a Humax Foxsat HDR set top box would meet my needs better than any...

ConsPossibly high set-up costs.

Freesat is one of the many ways you can get high quality digital television and receive HD channels (currently limited to BBC HD and ITV HD) delivered to your HD-ready TV. This method requires an externally mounted satellite receiver which you can install yourself but is best installed...
