Humax's Aura is the first Freeview Play Recorder powered by Android TV. So as well as being able to enjoy Live TV and a huge range of catch-up entertainment in stunning 4K resolution, you can get easy voice help from the Google Assistant, and wirelessly cast content from compatible smart devices like your smart phone or tablet. With a quad-core processor for exceptional speed, it supports HDR10 and Dolby Audio sound too, and you can record your must-watch shows on to its 1TB hard drive.

Powered by Android TV
It combines Live TV, on-demand catch up entertainment, and a host of apps, so everything is together in one place. A range of over 5000 apps and games is available from the Google Play Store, so you can easily access streaming services like Amazon Prime, Disney+, BT Sport, Apple TV+ and Paramount+ (subscriptions apply for selected services).

Google Assistant
Enjoy easy voice control with the Google Assistant built into the Aura. Find movies, programmes, Youtube videos, and music. Control compatible smart devices too (sold separately), and you can get info, check the weather forecast, and manage your day's schedule. All just by asking.

With Chromecast built-in you can cast entertainment from compatible smart devices. So it's easy to watch content from a smart phone, tablet or laptop on the big screen (internet connection required).

Freeview Play
This adds connected services to the Freeview offering. Within the Electronic Programme Guide you'll be able to scroll backwards through the last seven days of programming and select shows to stream over the internet that you might have missed. Choose from over 40,000 hours of TV and more than 700 box sets, and use Smart Search and Top Picks to find just what you want. And easily access a Kids Zone for all the best children's stuff, with a dedicated key on the remote.

Recording storage
With its 1TB hard drive, the Humax Aura can store up to 250 hours of HD content, and 500 hours of SD content.

USB play back
A USB 3.0 port means you can plug and play content from a FAT 32 formatted USB device or hard drive, so it's easy to watch your own stored entertainment.

App control
With the Humax Aura app (available on iOS and Android) on your smart device, you can stream live TV, set schedules and reminders, and download recordings.

A 4K UHD TV is required to enjoy a 4K picture.

Delivery information: If you buy a large screen TV along with this item, please note that they'll be delivered separately.
