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 500GB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The large capacity storage holds up to 250 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 4 out of 5 by from Good features. Good value for money. A great way of obtaining nearly all my required features of a Smart TV whilst upgrading my old PVR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I've had a Tevo box for the last 4 years and the Humax is a very good replacement, up to 4 recordings at once, pause live TV and very good fast forward speeds with video displayed so that you know when to stop unlike BBC Iplayer, only minor grip is the remote is not as chunky and well built as the Tevo remote

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up Very pleased with humax freeview easy to set up. Replaced a humax freesat. My only small comment would be that I find the operating system a little slow. Fantastic service and advice from Richer Sounds as always. Fast delivery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, easy to set up. Product works well and gives me all I need to view and record having dropped Sky. Only minor issue is finding programmes in the future, one has to scroll through hour by hour to find somrthing that might not be on untill 7 days later, it's a bit tiresome but otherwise everything works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional advice This product was selected for me by the staff at the Exeter Branch. Having described what I wanted to achieve they suggested the Humax. It met all my needs and I am delighted with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Bought this in as a method of upgrading the TV and some of the peripherals. Setup was very simple, with my 13 yr old helping me along. One of the main reasons for getiing it was access to Netflix which can now be done by oking on the drop down. The inputs and outputs were exactly what was required to integrate with existing hardware. Nice to have virtually all of them connected with HDMI. If I have one gripe it's the picture quality. It's a bit artificial, colour bright for me. Like watching TV in the US, and I can't find any way of altering that. Apart from that, perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up - good quality recorder The set up was easy both with the quick start guide and the on screen instructions. Sound and vision very good and the updated remote works well. The box itself feels plasticky and the on/off light is under the box so not easy to see! The older version had it on the front - not sure why the change.
