Humax launches UK’s first Freeview HD set-top

Set-top box manufacturer Humax has launched the UK’s first HD set-top for the Freeview DTT platform.

Freeview HD is already available in the London and Granada regions but the Humax HD-FOX T2 is the first compatible Freeview HD set-top box to be launched. The device, which costs £179 (€206), will enable HD-ready TV owners to watch free HD channels from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Welsh channel S4C, along with up to 50 standard definition channels. The box includes a USB port enabling users to play media content including photos, music and videos. It also comes with an Ethernet port for home networking.

Freeview HD is rolling out across the UK and will be available in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff and Manchester by the end of March.
