Humax FOXSAT-HD Freesat receiver review


Sky's subscription stranglehold on high-def broadcasting means that many people simply can't afford to experience HD TV for themselves. But thanks to Freesat – a joint venture between the BBC and ITV which offers over 80 TV and radio channels via...

Operating system, high-def pictures, non-Freesat mode, connections

Noisy SD pictures

A smart, hassle-free box that gets you high-def channels for a one-off payment, with a magnificent operating system and decent pictures

Humax's impressive Freesat box is well-built, generously specified and looks smart too

Inexpensive hi-def receiver ; Easy to use ; Good interface

Only a single HD channel at the moment

Overall, this little Humax is impressive. It's well-built, looks smart and is generously specified

Humax FOXSAT-HD Freesat Receiver


If you can't get a Freeview signal or don't want Sky, Humax's FOXSAT-HD Freesat Receiver could well be the answer.

The lack of a built-in hard-disk is a shame, but otherwise the digital TV feature list is fairly generous. It offers a 7-day EPG, digital text, subtitles, audio description and fast interactive access, plus its software can be updated using...

Humax Foxsat-HD (freesat) review


The Humax Foxsat-HD is a top class high-definition receiver and gets the freesat service off to a great start. All that's needed now is more freesat HD channels to truly make the most of its high definition capabilities

Great picture quality ; Good range of outputs ; Easy to use ; Compact and stylish

Remote control could be better ; EPG presentation could be improved

Conclusion The Foxsat-HD may be one of the first freesat box to hit the market, but it already feels like a mature product. It's fast, user friendly and offers great picture quality, but manages to pack all this into a compact and stylish box. We just...

Humax Foxsat-HD


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

Exceptionally smart and well-styled EPG and menu screens ; pictures are clean and stable ; HD performance is very impressive

Slight softness to SD picture and thin sound performance

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

Remote is cheap
