Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom555 from Great Value & Service I wanted an additional Freesat box for our new Kitchen/Diner. Based on previous good experience with Freesat units I looked around for deals. The offer at Richer Sounds was competitive & available from my local (Middlesborough) store. I'm a long-time supporter of Richer Sounds due to their excellent service & warranties. I was not disappointed. The store staff were friendly & efficient. The Freesat unit installed easily & after a few hours settling, performs well with good picture quality & fast interface. I would recomment this company to anyone who hasn't bought from them before. Thanks to the team & especially store manager, Paul.

Rated 4 out of 5 by popeye70 from Does the job required. Bought this PVR to replace ageing Humax. Simple to install and use. My only reservation is that I expected picture quality to be slightly better than it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cj1234 from Excellent alternative to Sky Only had basic package with Sky. Very happy with variety of Freesat channels. HD available at no extra cost. Better for recording - can record up to 4 channels, as long as using Sky Q LNB on dish

Rated 4 out of 5 by Peter Allen from Cheaper alternative to Sky. Early days, but so far extremely happy with my purchase. So we could move away from the expense of paying Sky for our TV programmes we went to Sky's cheaper alternative, Freesat.
