Freeview Play makes it easy
Freeview Play takes the nation’s most popular TV platform to the next level by offering easy to access, catch-up TV. With over 70 subscription-free channels and 20,000 hours of on demand TV available, there's always something to watch on Freeview TV.

Catch-up TV
Connect the Humax to your Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and enhance your TV viewing with effortless catch-up TV. Catching up on programmes you've missed is easy - simply use the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) to 'scroll' back on the last seven days TV programmes. With support for BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub*, All 4 and Demand 5, the great majority of the last seven days’ worth of TV are just a scroll away (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps). *ITV Hub is available in England, Wales and The Channel Islands.

Record, pause and rewind live TV
Featuring a 1TB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The large capacity storage holds up to 500 hours of TV - enough to be able to catch up on all your favourite TV even after an extended break away. With the pause and rewind function, interruptions from phone calls are no longer an issue - simply pause the live TV and resume when you're free again.

Stream in 4K HDR
For a step-up in picture quality, the Humax Aura is also compatible with 4K HDR streaming services. Connect to your 4K HDR TV and see enhanced detail, with a more natural picture than before. 4K HDR content is available via YouTube, Amazon Prime and many other streaming services.

Android TV and Google Play
Android TV and the Google Play store give you easy access to masses of video streaming services, plus apps and games. Simply sign in with your Google account and access favourite video streaming services, such as Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, BT Sport and many more (subscription charges may apply).

Chromecast built-in
Chromecast makes it easy to stream entertainment you love from your phone, tablet or laptop, to the TV. With a wireless link, it’s easy to sit back, relax and simply enjoy what’s on your phone, only on the big screen. (compatible devices required).

Google Assistant voice control, built-in
To access entertainment, change the volume, get answers on screen and more, just ask Google. Supplied with a voice activated remote, there’s no need for a separate Google speaker.

Smart home control
Taking voice control one-step further, Google Assistant also works in controlling a wide range of smart home devices, such as lighting, thermostats and cameras. Use voice control to set the ideal viewing environment, with the lighting and temperature just so.

Share via USB and UPnP
It’s easy to playback stored video or music, simply by plugging in a USB device. Alternatively, UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play) lets you play content from your computer or NAS drive using your home network.

Easy connectivity
For an easy, top quality connection to your TV, the Aura uses HDMI. The set-top box also features an optical digital output – perfect for connecting to a home cinema system or soundbar.

For a set-top box that’s the hub of your system, switch on to the Humax Aura 1TB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Change from BT I had noticed some reviews having difficulty with installing but I (at 82) had no problem, but after a few days odd things started to take over. The first was a notice on the screen that the box was not connected ( it was) Then it froze. Richer Sounds Help Line couldn't explain the cause and passed me to Humax. They did no better except to change my cable to the one supplied. My cable was high quality direct from the old BT box. so I did not agree. In the end I used the old computer trick -- switch mains off while running, leave for some time to let static disperse and the fault rectified! In the meantime Humax has renamed HDMI input on my TV as "Apple" There are in addition quite a few messages on screen when switching on but so fast I cannot read them and I have a certificate in speed reading. Also I agree with on line comments about the indicator light. It has a life of its own, and moves through various ranges of Purple but hardly ever Blue or Red. In the end I believe it is a problem of getting to know a new product, picture quality is excellent

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bit of Kit Left feedback earlier how easy the set-up was and promised to follow-up after having had the machine for a couple of weeks. All the apps seem to work seamlessly and recording has also been spot-on. Our old recorder was always chopping the end of recordings but so far the Humax has been perfect. Yep, a little more expensive than others but by far and away the best box I have owned. Get one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great improvement on response time. A replacement for a earlier model. Once set up the first improvement is the response time. Easy to set up picture quality very good, has with my earlier model synchronising picture and sound to my A/V’S seems to be a symptomatic problem especially in my case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Potential To Be Great! This box has potential to be fantastic, however at the moment isn't quite there! As a Freeview play recorder alone it's the best I've used, it's very quick with great picture quality and all the Freeview Play features you would expect. It's downfall comes with the media streaming side of things, having no Netflix, no Now TV or support for DTS-HD or Dolby Atmos audio. There's also audio sync issues when streaming some media. Hopefully all this can be sorted with some software updates! Amazon Prime Video does work well however. The Box does seem to deliver on the hardware side of things, but at the moment it's let down by it's software when it comes to streaming media.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far Great Arrived just two days ago. Set up was very easy. Have no knowledge as yet at how well it records but thought I would review in view of negative comments around BBC Iplayer. Both the Iplayer and All4 apps work with no issues. The EPG is fast and easily viewed so , so far so good.. Will leave a longer term review when I have had the box for a couple of months. Hope this helps. Only 4 stars at present until I have more experience using the Aura.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will be a great box in the future. I think it has been released too early, I believe the BBC services are now working. However I have the following niggles... 1. Compared to by BT Youview Box the signal on all channels is lower on the Aura with frequent breakup which is disappointing, if i plug my BT Youview box back in the breakup stops. 2. I was promised by Humax Support that the full NowTV would be supported at launch, it isnt. 3. While Netflix is available on my Sony Android TV, it is not available via the Aura. I was looking for a 'one stop shop' for all my TV services, unfortunately at this time this isn't the box. I have raised some of my issues with Humax support however or less I contact them, they haven't contacted me which is disappointing, given the premium price for this box I am not willing to be a beta tester for Humax, so the box is going back. As I said, this has promise for the future... just not now. On another note, Richer Sounds have been great through the entire process!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slick, but limited apps A sleek machine that's quite responsive and easy to setup. However, there's no Netflix app and no option to install it. The BBC apps don't work and it keeps trying to access the WiFi even though I've connected it by ethernet. The app range in the Google play store available isn't huge. I've contacted Humax support for advice, but don't really want to return it to Richer Sounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brilliant device let down by one major omission This device looked like my opportunity to finally get all my services together in one unit. Pre ordered it when it was announced and have just received it. It was easy to set up and is easy to use. It is fast and feature rich just as advertised. The addition of Android TV, Google Play and built in Chromecast makes it very versatile. The remote works via Bluetooth so no line of sight needed to operate it. It comes with loads of apps pre-installed and has the ability to install others from the play store such as Disney+ and DPlay. Having Prime Video available with a dedicated button on the remote is also a benefit. I have had no issues with BBC iPlayer like some other reviewers. So far so good. Let's address the elephant in the room. There is no Netflix. It is not available to download from the Play Store and the Aura will not allow Netflix to be cast to it from any other device. The only way I found to get round this was to use Google Home on my phone and mirror the screen. Fine if you like to watch your Netflix at the quality of a 1970's CRT. So my attempt go get all my services on one device failed. I have swapped one Humax device and an Amazon Firestick for a different Humax device and an old Chromecast I had kicking around in a drawer. Saying the Aura has Android TV and Chromecast built in is only true to a point. They have clearly decided or been forced to restrict the functionality to deliberately block Netflix. Not ideal and it might have changed my decision to buy it had this been made clear. It is a great piece of kit let down by a very disappointing omission.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply not good enough This was delivered today, and after struggling to set it up, packaged it back up for return. This is a new product, but it simply doesn't work properly and it hasn't been properly tested before putting it on the market. The optical audio output works for TV, but not for the apps, and the BBC i-Player does not work. The interface is confusing and the range of apps is limited. This renders the unit pretty useless. Very disappointing. That said, Richer Sounds' after sales service is excellent and I will buy another box, a different one, from them once this is sorted out. Overall, a real disappointment.
