Humax FOXSAT-HD Freesat receiver - Pocket-lint

 

Sky's subscription stranglehold on high-def broadcasting means that many people simply can't afford to experience HD TV for themselves. But thanks

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

Noisy SD pictures

The FOXSAT HD offers a great introduction to the world of Freesat. The most impressive aspect is the user interface, which makes it an absolute breeze to use, but it’s also packed with a decent array of features and connections, and its picture quality...

Humax Foxsat-HD review

 

The first hi-def Freesat receiver is a must-have

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

Only a single HD channel at the moment

A great start to the launch of Freesat, this user-friendly deck has a lot to offer

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

 

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

 

I have had a satellite disk for years – so long in fact it predates Sky – however the box with it has long been faulty. Humax now have a service that installs a dish and your unit, when the installer arrived my original disk position was unsuitable...

The Guide gives quite a bit of information showing the current channel as well as the next six. Around 150 minutes of information is shown at any time with a description of the current program at the top of the screen. This is the default view, but,...

This offering will provide subscription free access to satellite delivered television channels and services without the need to tie a customer to a contract. Currently the Freesat offering stands at 80 channels featuring those available via Freeview...

SUPERB!

 

I bought this freesat box to replace an absolute rubbish bush box! After reading all the reviews for this box i decided to put in the extra money and go for it! I have not looked back since.
