Looking to buy Freeview Boxes?

There's little point in owning a television if you can't watch shows on it! You could sign up to a cable or satellite TV service to get your televisual kicks, but a far cheaper option is the humble Freeview. Unlike other kinds of digital TV transmission, you don't need to pay a monthly subscription fee to access your shows (that's where the 'free' in 'Freeview' comes from). You will need some hardware, though. Specifically, you'll need a Freeview box from this category!

Do I really need a Freeview box now?

Freeview became a massive success in the early 2000s, providing a cheap and reliable way to access the biggest digital channels in the UK for no monthly fee for the first time. This was a big revelation at the time, but in the age of streaming and catch-up TV it's seen as outdated technology - particularly since all TVs made since 2010 have a Freeview receiver built-in.

But don't count the separate set top box out just yet - one can still come in handy! The most obvious reason you'd want a new Freeview box is to replace a broken one. Sometimes technology just goes wrong, and you shouldn't have to miss out on your favourite TV shows just for that. It could be that your old TV box isn't working any more, or perhaps your new TV has mysteriously stopped receiving signal - a Freeview box presents an attractive alternative to buying a brand new flat panel.

Alternatively you may be upgrading from Freeview to Freesat. They're similar technologies but instead of receiving video signals through an ordinary aerial like Freeview, Freesat uses a satellite dish. For a little extra investment, you get access to dozens of extra channels and superior picture quality with no subscription cost.

Types of Freeview boxes

Whatever your reasons for wanting to buy a new Freeview box, you can choose from a wide variety of models from top brands in the sector, including August, Humax boxes, Manhattan Freeview boxes and more. Some of these devices are powered by the Android operating system, which gives you access to TV on demand and streaming apps like Netflix.

Even better, some can record your TV shows for you! A Freeview recorder has a built-in digital memory bank which can usually hold between 500GB and 1TB of digital video data, which is enough for dozens of hours of TV even at Full HD resolution. These Freeview recording boxes have the same features as a traditional VHS recorder. You can set up a timer to record programmes in advance so you needn't worry about missing your favourite shows, even while you're on holiday.
