I find that lot of these deals are not on the shelves at all. night to enquire whether they have them in the store room. that's how I find most of them.

​says HB 1000S on box and price tag
£69 in Stretford store. Shame
Not bad if you can get one, I had one keep in mind they are a single feed box meaning you would need an external hard drive no wifi you need to use a dongle or be hard wired to router, a bit like the sky multi room boxes
OP is a legend. I actually needed these and got the last 2. Top work by Tesco who actually called me back to say theyd located them. Happy to post when I get home.
dont need one
but have some heat anyway for a top avatar pal ;-)

​says HB 1000S on box and price tag


It is a good price, but keep in mind that the 1000S is ancient, it is years old by now, and it does feel quite clunky. However, it should still be fully functional, including HD programmes.
Yes, but the question is can you record on it?
Cracking box. I added a 1TB hard drive. Cheerio Virgin tea leaves!
I have 2 of these. Ideal box if you want Freetime (you do) and have a spare external HD and an ethernet cable. Only negative I can give is they take 30 seconds to boot up each use.
Very good deal, I have one, the only problem I have that hasn't been mentioned is that mine has the slightly annoying habit of randomly rebooting itself every day or so. If you can live with that minor irritation, this is very good value.
Iplayer is due to disappear from these in September
£69 in Telford.

yes. plug in a flash drive or external in the back.

really? I can't find any info on that. got a link?
iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/tv/…max
We have this exact box at home and now everytime we switch the humax on it comes up with the message telling us that this model is affected. It's going to be really annoying when it happens as we'll have to get something else to watch iplayer
reduced from?
called tesco in beaumontleys, leicester. their clearance price is £69.99 and there were only 2 in stock from midnight last night. not as hot as expected!

That link states it isn't affected? Only the 2008 models are?

It's normally priced at £59. This is quite a big reduction in price, previously the cheapest available were refurbs direct from Humax at £40.

Try reading that page again. It clearly states that the HB-1000S is one the certified models that isn't affected by this change.

Only the Foxsat HD and Foxsat HDR from 2008 are affected.

What is wired or wifi actually for? Can I use this box or one like it to take a signal from dish/LNB then stream it around the house?

Much more likely is that your local Tesco stores don't have it at this price or at all.

The HB1000S is far from ancient, unlike the older Foxsat models. Both the HB1000S (Single Tuner) and HDR1100S or older HDR1000/1010S models both use the freetime interface and are Freesat+ (G2 spec) receivers. The only other to use the Freesat+ interface I believe are Panasonic tvs with inbuilt freesat.

There has been nothing to surpass Freesat+, therefore 'old' really refers to the likes of Sagem, Samsung, Manhatten Technisat and Bush.

Tesco Extra (Telford) earlier. Shelf label £78. Scanned @ £69. Not sure how widely available this is @ £24.75.

No iPlayer shortly?
Not worth it for me, even for £25, even without the goose chase.
Cold, sorry.

Try some reading comprehension and you'll find that only two models on that page are listed as losing iPlayer in Sept. 2016. This model is not one of them.
