Cheap Freeview Set Top Box

By Goodmans

  • Low power consumption
  • Convert any TV to digital!
  • Twin SCART
Best Price £21.95 Buy from Amazon

If you're looking to buy a cheap Freeview box for terrestrial digital TV (via your aerial) there are many budget set top boxes to choose from under 50, with the cheapest Freeview receivers around 25.

In reality, given that all new TV's have built in DVB-T and DVB-T2 compatible tuners, you would only need to buy a set top box to convert an older TV to digital.

The difference in performance between the cheap brands and the best Freeview boxes can be significant, especially if you live in a weak signal area - so be warned.

YouView Recorders

If you have around £200 to spend, then a YouView recorder makes a lot of sense. These hook up to your existing TV aerial and your Internet router to provide advanced functionality, including access to On Demand TV.

The Humax DTR-T2000 offers many of the features of a Sky+ HD box, including pause and rewind live TV, as well as the ability to record two channels simultaneously. There's also a convenient 'series record' function, so that you never miss your favourite TV programmes.

The Humax DTR-T2000 is also compatible with Freeview HD services, which offer four times the picture detail compared to standard definition.

Both HD and standard definition programmes can be recorded and the box also provides access to all popular catch-up TV services. You can even programme it remotely from your mobile using the Humax iOS or Android App.
