£12 instore. Add 1.50 for delivery if ordered online. Comes with 24 months warranty.

Back in stock with a slight price increase, but still a good option if you want a YouView box and not bothered about a hard drive.

Still offers 7 days forwards and back TV guide with catch up for most channels, HD receiver, and apps like Now TV movies on demand and Netflix.

Cheap but that's because the freeview receiver isn't very good. It loses signal regularly even when my TV tuner has brilliant signal. Unless you have brilliant signal via your aerial, don't bother.

I've tried one briefly and it worked fine despite being some distance from my local transmitter (far enough for an indoor aerial to pick up nothing at all)

Perhaps you were just unlucky and got a faulty box?
This is an excellent freeview receiver. I have three. They all work flawlessly even with weak signals that others struggle with.
Its a Freeview box wow

Glad it works well for you and others. I've had 2 boxes and both are the same.
i have this box already and have a BT sub, if i get one of these could it work as a 2nd box and receive all of the paid for channells?

I know TalkTalk YouView boxes allow multiple boxes since the last software update, so possibly. Can't say for sure with BT though, never been with them.

If you buy the box online you do get a change of mind returns policy though, if you can't get it to set up the BT channels
got this and the BT/Humax with hard drive never had problem with signal strength. found them really good . Like the You view interface seen really quick and lot better than most smart TV's .Only down side it has no WiFi .Dont have BT sub got mine for £5 at boot sale find we use them all time u get catch up from guide inc bbc itv ch4/5 and UK tv and recorded progs show on guide ,So no searching in my recordings

£5 a month and won't apply to Sky Sports/Movies. They say that you have to get the box from them though

I am looking for something like this for a bedroom but this only appears to work with ethernet? What would be the best alternative with a wifi connection? Thanks
Second hand freeview box where you can pay to subscribe to BT sport, doe shave apps but needs a hard-wire internet connection. The nowTV smart box seems better value for the same second hand price

UI for Now TV isn't as good. And they really try to push you into using their services. Last time I looked at the smart box it didn't even have a proper TV Guide for Freeview!

You could always still use this with a couple of powerline adapters? This is how I made them work in other rooms usually with better broadband performance than I would get over WiFi too!

Other than the Now TV Smart box which isn't really anywhere near as good you don't get any other options that would do the job other than subscription based offerings like a Sky Q Mini box, or a Virgin Tivo V6 Box
What do these do? Are they same as a NowTv box?

Not quite. They give you Freeview HD in a much better user interface than a Now TV box. Your TV guide will go forwards and back 7 days each way for you to watch catch up on most channels and shows.

In terms of apps, it has things like Now TV for movies on demand, and Netflix built in too.

Also, if you happen to have BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk or KC broadband, you'll be able to pick up their own extra channels and services (as per your package, or extra charges you agree to. For example TalkTalk offer the Sky TV channels through YouView for a few pounds extra per month, and that option is generally a better experience than Now TV passes, should you opt to take them)
