This stylish Freesat box certainly looks the part - and its user-friendly performance is equally impressive

Humax Foxsat-HD (freesat)


The Humax Foxsat HD is simply, to me, a "what is says on the tin" job. Its great, I found it very user friendly, I mean sure the manual is a bit... lacking in friendliness but its easy to get your head round. Upon using the Humax set-up with out any...

Easy set-up, BBC iPlayer integration is easy to use
