humax hdr-1100s

Humax has launched a smaller, sleeker Freesat box to replace its award-winning HDR-1010S. Called the Humax HDR-1100S, it shaves inches off its predecessor thanks to the removal of its front LCD.

It also loses the Scart socket, which we can't imagine anyone will miss.

The new box measures 280x48x200mm, which should easily fit under your TV. It's available in white or black, and comes with Wi-Fi for wirelessly connecting to the internet.

The box comes in three storage sizes: 500GB (£189), 1TB (£219) and 2TB (£299).

Because it's a Freesat box, it works without needing a subscription and connects to a satellite dish. This will give you 200 free TV and radio channels, 11 of which are in high definition.

You'll also get the standard catch-up services – BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All4 and Demand 5 – a rollback TV guide, and the ability to plan your viewing and set recordings while you're out using the Freesat app on your smartphone.

"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."
