Top 10 best Freesat boxes for UK TVs



Humax Foxsat HD


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

The £125 Humax was the first HD receiver available and it's wonderfully specified. Its back panel crams in two Scarts, one HDMI, an Ethernet port, USB, component video, AV phonos, an optical audio output and a standard F-connector.

Pretty much everything you need for either a simple box and TV combination, or high-end home theatre hook-up. Image quality is channel-dependant.

At launch, the only HD service came from the BBC, although ITV has since launched its own HD offerings.

Thankfully, images from the Beeb are simply gorgeous, with ravishing levels of detail. Overall, this little Humax is impressive. It's well-built, looks smart and is generously specified.
