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

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,...

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.

Accidental Purchase


We bought this product because the feature in the Argos catalogue 'suggested' by icons at the bottom of the page that the product would allow you to watch YouTube in addition to On Demand. However, reality is that you can only watch ITvPlayer,...
