Got one myself just now. Absolutely stonking deal!

I love my Humax Foxsat but the remote is very laggy. Does anyone know if this remote is any better??

Still a hot deal though at this price, especially as it is a media stream/player too!

What store please?

i got mine from greenwich store

Ashtad, Thank you!

I've just bought one! They had 2 left in Comet in Sunderland; one now!

Is there a Comet deals thread on here? Some of the bargains weren't very good when I was in, only 10% at the moment...

Any store that's not been shut down yet.oO

Were none at Old Kent Road this morning - could see the Freetime ads but no Freetime boxes [or even shelf stickers indicating they ever had any].

Plenty of the YouView equivalent though.

Just picked one of these up from Burnley, it was the last boxed one on the shelves (one on display may be for sale)

I agree, thought it was my remote that must be faulty, it is so slow that it pees me right off sometimes.

the remote is very responsive and quick the whole box is am very pleased with it

Freetime would be a welcome feature, gutted that I didn't do enough research as I'd have waited and bought one, I just assumed mine would have it and much to my dismay last night, none!

My mate really wanted one of these, so in his good books after passing this deal on!

yes it the same as youveiw but freetime is freesat version... that all u can rewind back and the tv guid and u can play the programs u missed. I uploads the BBC iPlayer and ITV player etc depends on what channel and program. u want to chatch up on :)..

Whats the better box overall my store has both

go for the freetime as had better reviews.. then youview but they both do the same lol

snap this up at this price !!!! I got one last week for £280 direct from Humax .... excellent freesat player/recorder and more ..... would recommend getting home plugs to go with it if you haven't got them already

Will I miss virgin xl ? Is there enough variety in the channel choices,and how much hd content is available.

Ah - finally most people have cottoned on to the fact that you don't have to pay £10+ for a store-ripoff HDMI lead.

not sure about the virgin xl as I've never had it but any HD freeview content that is out there is on freesat

correct me if I'm wrong

I'v switched over from sky freeview and this has brought my TV back to life.

the freesat option is better more chance of getting more hd channels in future as apposed to freeview due to space and allocations if you currently have a old sky dish then its the perfect best option

Unfortunately Commet would have to be giving their stock away for me to ever step foot in their stores again. It is no wonder they're closing.

However, this doesn't seem like a bad deal. Thanks

thanks op, just picked one up. had a label up saying 10% off original price but went through till at 195.99

Not sure if this is correct, for instance ITV4HD is not on freestat, yet is available via Sky. I wanted to watch football on ITV4HD tonight as noticed that it was being advertised as available in HD! But could not find an ITV4HD channel on my freestat box and after googling discovered it is only available via Sky because of some sort of agreement between them & Sky. And there are no plans to add any further HD channels to freestat, I cant believe ITV4HD is not on freestat as I thought freestat was meant to be the competion against Sky!

Very tempted. Have heat!

ITV4HD isn't a free HD channel though so you only get it with sky if you pay them the extra.

Just got one from Swansea, there were a couple left still. great stuff!

Hot! Just bought last one in Comet Uddingston. Thanks op
