What A Lovely Box

Advantages: Cheap, easy to use, reliable
Disadvantages: The EPG is a bit of a drag

I’ve pretty much always had Sky (or Virgin) but in 2010, the year the proverbial hit the fan, I decided I needed to cut some costs, first thing out the window was Sky. Towards the end I really never felt like I was watching the channels that cost so much, ...

Bush Freesat BFSAT01HD

Advantages: HD channels with no subscription

The Bush BFSAT01HD is very easy to install. As well as an instruction manual, there's also an easy setup sheet. It takes literally less than five minutes to connect it to your TV and to your satellite dish. All that's left then, is to plug it in and tu ...

High-quality reception? Humax. What , the Foxsat?

Advantages: Easy to use, easy to install, good performance
