Humax and Freesat launch compact connected Freetime box
Humax and Freesat have launched the most compact and affordable Freetime set-top box recorder to date, bringing the benefits of the subscription-free satellite TV service to a wider group of consumers.
The new HDR-1100S offers all of the features of the Freetime service, with integrated Wi-Fi providing seamless access to on-demand and catch-up players including BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, YouTube and Curzon Home Cinema. The box can also be paired with the Freesat App so users can plan their viewing and set recordings while they’re out and about.
“With the ever increasing consumer demand for the connected home, there was an absolute necessity to incorporate Wi-Fi within the new Humax Freesat Freetime family,” said Graham North, Commercial Director of Humax.
“The new box adds even more appeal to the popular Freetime service, allowing great streaming and on-demand content to be easily accessible. Its compact size and range of colours provide further value and choice to consumers, making it a must-have product for home entertainment.”
The unit measures 280W x 48H x 200D and is priced at £189 (500GB), £219 (1TB) and £299 (2TB). It is available in a glossy black or white finish.
