Top 10 best Freesat boxes for UK TVs



Metronic Freesat Kit


Metronic bundles its Freesat HD receiver with a dish kit for DIY Freesat installation

The receiver is well-made, roughly the same size as a box of Black Magic, and is powered by an external 12V DC power supply.

Yet it has all - or most - of the features of other Freesat HD units.

The front panel lacks a display - all you get is a red LED to indicate standby - but there are tiny buttons for standby plus channel and volume up/down.

Picture and sound quality are excellent, the HD 100 proving more than a match for more expensive Freesat hardware. Detail levels are impressive, and the upscaling of standard-def to hi-def is handled well.
