The Best British TV On Demand from Freeview Play Freeview Play gives you 95% of the nation's favourite TV, all for free. No idea yet what will happen if and when I need to retune, the old one would lose my list of planned re ordings whenever it needed to retune. However, such devices that also record, pause live TV and stream catch-up TV have consistently lacked any real wow factor.

As there are still other issues we are working on we are making this an optional update and will be releasing a bigger update in the new year.In hindsight I don't think the box software was quite fully ready, it was rough around the edges, and the promised APP was nowhere to be seen. but a long-standing issue related to HDD initialisation and standby synchronisation that occurs randomly in some boxes more than others. It all looks stunning, but it’s mainly a screensaver replacement and not content you’re actually going to sit down and watch. Bad reception can and will affect the picture quality, but I can at least say that in my area, where reception is decent, the picture and sound quality – especially on the HD channels – were excellent.

I admit I was a fierce critic of Humax in this forum for their apparent development and support abandonment of the 4000T/5000T. Your live TV connection is via the aerial cables but playback of recorded programmes plus iplayer etc are via the hdmi connection. It’s important to remember one major difference between recording a programme and watching it via a catchup app – the adverts.I was – and still am, a big fan of the T3-R, as it combines advanced recording features with excellent picture quality and a snappy interface (see my full Manhattan T3-R review). Freeview is still quite popular, despite all the streaming services we’re all now used to – as it provides 80+ channels without any monthly fees (except for the TV Licence fee). Sure, it’s lightning-quick and has the kind of user interface some gadgets would die for, but even a host of smart features can’t prevent us from missing the Netflix app. I am quite impressed with this box and if Manhattan introduces a few of the staple subscription apps in the future it would become my only streaming device.
