humax fvp-4000t

Humax's Freeview Play set-top boxes now have access to Netflix. The streaming service is now available as an over-the-air update to the 500GB and 1TB sizes of the FVP-4000T model.

That means as long as you have a Netflix account, you can download the update, link your account to your set-top box and get streaming.

"With the ever-increasing 'binge-watching' phenomenon, where entire series are consumed with no interruptions or commercial breaks, we have witnessed a dramatic revolution in viewing habits over the past two to three years," said Graham North, commercial director at Humax.

"With the Netflix app fully integrated into the Humax FVP-4000T home page, our customers will now benefit from a seamless, 'watch instantly' streaming experience and an exceptional, diverse choice of entertainment options with unlimited hours of extra programming – in addition to the extensive range of on-demand and subscription-free services already on offer to them."

The boxes are equipped for full HD content, so you can watch in that resolution (providing your TV supports it). Though sadly you won't be able to stream Netflix in 4K through the box.

The boxes come with access to all Freeview Play catch-up services, including BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and Demand 5. They also have three digital tuners, meaning you can record multiple channels while watching another live.

Both also have a scroll back TV guide with seven-day catch-up function. Plus you can rewind and pause live TV.
