Freeview Play makes it easy

Freeview Play takes Freeview HD to the next level by offering easy to access, catch-up TV. You also get all the other great benefits of Freeview. With over 75 subscription-free channels including 15 HD channels available, there's always something to watch with Freeview TV.

The next step - scroll-back TV
Connect the Humax to your Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and you can 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.

Now with Netflix and YouTube
As well as the regular UK TV channels, the FVP-5000T gives easy access to other popular video services. If you’ve got a Netflix account then you can get easy, single-key access. YouTube, Freeview Explore and UK TV Play are also covered.

Record, pause and rewind live TV
Featuring a large 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 a long 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.

Share via USB and UPnP
It’s easy to playback stored video or music by simply 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 FVP-5000T uses HDMI. Humax haven’t forgotten about the sound, either. A choice of analogue phono or optical digital audio outputs let you connect up to pretty much any soundbar, AV receiver, amp or Hi-Fi system.

Get the best in catch-up TV without any subscription fee – the Humax FVP-5000T makes the best TV affordable for all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall unit, great link to online players Bought a month ago and I like the link to netflix and all other players such as ITV player, BBC etc. Graphics look modern easy to use once get used to newer features from my older HUMAX. Some negatives, cant search for genres such as movies as easy as older model, can be a bit slow at times

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great PVR everything I expect from Humax Bought about three weeks ago so pretty new to me, but getting to know my way round it, so far no problems easy to set up and operate, the only snag it keeps losing signal on some stations, depends on the the weather conditions, on the whole pleased with the recorder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I replaced my previous Humax although it was still functioning. New one much smaller and longer range of recording

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for old humax I bought this to replace our original humax that just stopped working...it was very old. The new one is easy to use and , in my opinion, has a better handset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax FVP5000T 1TB I bought this a week or so back so I'm still finding my way around. Bought to replace an ancient Virgin TiVo box as I leaving Virgin. The TiVo box was great for skipping through channels and reviewin without actually selecting a channel, I'm still learning with the Humax. So far it seems pretty good, time will hopefully improve my experience. Recording is pretty simple with a choice of selecting a single program or a whole series. Options are also able to extend timing for said programs, plus the on screen messages are nice and obvious. Deleting recordings is simple and quick unlike the TiVo that I found a pain, although there is hardly a need to delete anything because of the big hard drive of 1 terrabyte. Being able to record 4 programs at once while watching a fifth is a first for me and a great asset especially as almost anything worth watching these days is always on at the same time? All in all a good purchase and recommended already to friends and family!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One glitch; otherwise good. Has been a Which best buy. Expensive, but does everything you could want. Good EPG, and easy to find everything. All catch up apps available through Internet. Easy to set up - good quick start guide. After 3 days, it suddenly wiped all my recordings!! Richer Sounds shop suggested doing a factory reset, and it then seems to have been ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed Review Bought this to replace an older Humax box which had started playing up. Takes a bit of getting used to as some of the functions are very different. Pros: compact size, records more channels at the same time, good storage size, great price Cons: clunky as you switch between functions with a momentary delay, remote control feels cheap
