Product information

The Humax HB-1000S receiver will unlock a world of online and satellite entertainment. Enjoy hundreds of channels, many in stunning HD, as well as on-demand services like BBC iPlayer and ITV Player. The HB-1000S also has a clever roll back TV guide, so tracking down missed programmes is as easy as checking what’s on next. It’ll also pause and rewind live TV when you attach an external hard drive (available separately).

More channels
Combining freesat HD, BBC iPlayer, All 4, Demand 5 and ITV Player the Humax HB-1000S delivers hundreds of channels of viewing goodness. Complete with an easy-to-use electronic programme guide, even setting reminders and browsing for missed programmes is a breeze.

Pause, record, rewind
Recording your programmes is as simple as connecting an external hard drive. This also allows rewinding and pausing of live action.

HDMI, USB and more
The HB-1000S has enough connectivity to join just about any AV setup. The HDMI port and included HDMI cable makes it a snap to connect to compatible sets and enjoy HD viewing. There are also two USB ports for media sharing, as well as RCA and optical outputs.

Sharper viewing
This receiver features upscaling software that boosts the quality of SD (standard definition) broadcasts to near-HD levels.

Please note: To enjoy freesat+ broadcasts you will need a dish and cabling installed. freesat does not require a contract or a subscription – just a one-off payment for your dish and installation. To organise installation, please visit or call one of our shops. Click here to find out more about freesat.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Set up An Good Quality Picture The receiver was easy to set up and produces a very good picture. It is quite compact yet has a host of features. 08 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Yet Had to replace my old Sagecom when it died, generally please with the old thing. But this Humax knocks the spots off it, better picture, sound, navigation around the programme guide. The Freetime is an added bonus, just connect to the internet and you can catch-up on missed viewing, even pay to see films on Curzon. Well pleased. Used John Lewis click and collect: quick and easy as ever. 24 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Just about does what it says on the box This was bought to replace a real cheapie that had taken to freezing after many years of faithful service, sadly the HB-1000S isn't in the same league and we find it awkward to use to the point where after just six weeks we've stopped using it and reverted to the faulty box. It takes an incredibly long time to start up. We tend to watch non-freesat channels as well and the convoluted method of getting to them each time is beyond belief - it's almost as if it's been deliberately programmed to discourage viewing of non-Freesat sites. It's not quite bad enough to reject as unfit for purpose but, sadly, we're very disappointed and need to find another replacement - this time we will check it out in store first! 23 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Humax HB 1000s Great freesat box does what it says on the box .Very pleased with purchase. 22 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by useful product Good product. Only downside is that the only display (channel, etc) is on the TV not on the Satellite box - unlike my other receiver/recorder - also a Humax. Received excellent support from Humax giving an easy way to change remote control frequency so that one remote doesn't operate both devices at the same time! 17 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unresolved problem with my Humax HB-1000s A really great Freesat receiver BUT it reboots itself every hour or so - so frustrating when you are trying to follow a play. Contacted Humax who have not been able to sort out the problem. They tell me that a software update may cure the problem and that they are still writing the software. Have been waiting almost 4 weeks now so if it is not resolved soon the item will be returned for a refund. If not for this problem I would give this product 5 stars. 16 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good replacement Our previous one stopped functioning so this is our replacement. works fine. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bit of kit. On Demands are quicker than with terrestial Don't use Freeview anymore. 20 October 2015
