Be afraid Sky…be very afraid I’ve had a sky+ box with a basic package – £27 a month – for 5 years and realised that other non-subscription options were multiplying, in the last year especially. Opted for freesat over freeview after direct comparison clearly favoured freesat for it’s picture quality on both SD and HD channels. Freesat also seemed more future proof than freeview. Interestingly, John Lewis, where I bought it, use satellite reception for their display TVs. The set-up was easy – just unplugged the satellite cables from the sky+ box, screwed them into the Humax, connected the HDMI to the TV, and it was off and running. The Onscreen guide (EPG) is almost as easy to use as the Sky and easily learnt without poring over manuals – my wife has no complaints – which is a reasonable benchmark for user friendliness. Great picture quality and huge storage capacity. The wi-fi built-in makes it likely that Netflix et al will not be long in arriving. The on demand services already…

Great Alternative to SKY Brought this box as a replacement for SKY even though I had seen some negative reviews on the internet. First impressions are great, very easy to install and despite what I read I found the remote very easy and natural to use. ( Different from SKY obviously but has to be! but within a few minutes your have it figured out without any need to even read the instructions)Used the internal WIFI and it streams without any problems (my router is 4m away behind another wall), some internet reviews criticised the built in WIFI as not very good but the manual does say best results are achieved using a wired connection, if your signal is strong and close it should be ok. Only criticism is the “you tube” APP always displays a flashing “loading” while playing clips, not sure whats causing it?The recording function, I have done a few test records on 5 programs 4 worked well but 1 started recording only for the last 45mins on the film!? So some more test runs…

Excellent all round solution Excellent, does what it is supposed to brilliantly. A big step up from poor signal on freeview. On demand also useful.
