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 on a capacious 2TB hard drive
Featuring a high capacity, 2TB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The extra-large capacity storage holds up to 1000 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 2TB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy The Humax PVR arrived in perfect condition and in free post just two days after being purchased online so well done Richer Sounds. For the PVR itself we have only had it a bit more than a week so haven't got on top of all its possibilities yet but we are already using it to record three different channel at the same time. We find the picture and sound great and the operation reasonably straight forward. Definitely a good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax great buy Bought to get off the Virgin treadmill just as good as TiVo box but free as many channels as I need

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously impressed. I bought this to replace my ageing Sky HD box but wasn’t prepared for the stunning picture quality and not having to deal with clashing recordings as I can record 4 programmes at the same time! I’m also getting better audio through my AV amplifier. I received the item the next day after ordering which was unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best STB Out there I originally bought the FXP-500B which was awful and sent back. This box on the other hand is amazing! Thank you Richer Sounds for swapping the box. Great customer service as always.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unpredictable, freezing Apps, faulty Freeview Play I bought this 12 days ago hoping for a vast improvement over the very slow and clunky FVP-5000T. Well, once you get past the startup hiccups by a cold restart on the second day (forced OS update then no access to Freeview Catchup apps) it is a bit slicker, but there is a myriad of odd behaviours. You cannot switch on hoping to return to the channel or menu you last used. It is totally unpredictable and even the "Continue Playing" option is not as expected. Available Android Playstore Apps are so limited that almost none of the most familiar ones for handling documents, photos or videos are present. There is a nice Android File Manager (Solid Explorer) which I already loved but even gaining access to my 3 cloud storages I discovered I could only download photos/videos to the remaining 5GB of internal storage, not the vast 2TB I was hoping, and once you have formatted an external USB HDD you cannot download anything to/from it so what's the point? Then the potential great advantage of the Freeview Play Program Guide is unusable to find missed catchup programme from the past week as they di not display until you go down the days then back up one, and then the list displayed belongs to another (unpredictable) channel, NOT the one chosen or displayed at the top! But perhaps the worst aspect is the badly-designed remote control. Keys so stiff they are uncomfortable but so flat and snug you can't feel which one you want and constantly press the wrong one around the OK. Then the layout of "Programs"/"Apps"/"Home"/"Guide" buttons is confusing and illogical. Previous models were so much better and easier to use. I have now returned the Aura for an upgrade to the, admittedly, more old-school Panasonic DMR-BWT850EB which does not have "4K” display capability but a much more professional presentation and many more useful features (previous-play, 4/3 speed playback, renaming/moving recordings and Netflix!).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HUMAX 4K AURA 2TB I have used Humax Freesat boxes since 2012, and when my Humax 1100S box, which I bought from Richer Sounds in 2015, started to fail and I could not get it replaced as Humax stopped making Freesat boxes, I decided to change to Freeview. I researched my options and decided to go for Humax Aura 2TB. Luckily I added on Riches Sounds' 6 year warranty, and the price I paid for my old 1100S was deducted from the price of the Aura. I have now had the Aura for some 3 weeks and it works perfectly, and I would highly recommend it. I must say that the staff at Richer Sounds Watford, give 100% to make a customer happy, which makes one come back to Richer Sounds. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that the Aura remote control doesn't have direct access to Netflix, and in order to get Netflix one has to use the TV's remote control.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Product Handbook I cannot view all the things on my Humax as I have no Product Handbook, it was delivered by Royal Mail and I have rung Humax about it but still nothing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with my new Humax Aura Ordered yesterday delivered today usual Richer Sounds service. Does everything that I expected plus Plex is now installed and working, from previous reviews I didn't expect it to be available. I can now put my Roku box away one more item and remote I no longer need. Many thanks Humax and Richer Sounds another satisfied customer.
