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.

App control
Download the free Humax Live TV app (available for Apple and Android) and you’ll get a whole new level of control. With the app you can stream live TV or recordings from your recorder to smart device. You can also set reminders, schedule recordings and even access the TV guide from the myHumax portal.

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 1 out of 5 by from Nice idea but so SLOW! Bought as we moved house and no dish in the new place for Freesat. Nice interface and features but this box is SO SLOW. The lag is ridiculous. Wish I'd have bought basic Sky instead. Richer Sounds continues to be an awesome retailer though, in store and online!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Human PVR box. This unit replaced an older unit that was not working,I had excellent results for eight years with it so decided to stay with the brand.New unit is very good and am very pleased with my choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All that it claims to be. This has proved to be exactly what I was looking for. Recording and playback are easy to do and work well. And the ability to record up to 4 programmes at the same Tim meets all our viewing needs, as we tend not to watch programmes live but watch recordings in our own time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price and Service Reponse to contact by email was excellent, purchase process smooth and delivery, as promised - would highly recommend. Easy to set up and use and plenty of space for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax FVP500T 1TB Brilliant Purchased the above a couple of weeks ago, Brilliant. Always had TalkTalk boxes previously, but after 3 and all going wrong deceided to buy instead. Use the box all the time as you can record up to 4 things at a time and watch one all at the same time. Simple to use and looks great at the same time. So far so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great multi tuner PVR but slow to respond Moved from a Humax Fox T2, only because that wouldn't HDMI handshake properly with a new AV receiver. The T2 had a fast and simple guide with easy searching. Sadly this new Humax has a feature-rich EPG and that slows things down enormously. So frustrating. Click Guide and wait... has it worked? Oh... yes. Search? Yes that's there, but again it's slow and unwieldy in use compared to the T2. Each letter is searched as you laboriously enter it in a linear onscreen keyboard. F... (click right 20 times) ... 1. Then it searches on-demand material, recorded material, and finally future offerings. Series recording. That's there also and it's a super feature, but once more compromised by lack of anything approaching speedy response. What a shame - I wish I hadn't had to upgrade. Humax, ditch the media-heavy guide and keep things simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed We wanted a recorder so that we could discontinue our sky subscription. This box gives us what we needed and more. Easy to set up and operate.
