”This Humax TV box remains an excellent choice”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 award-winner.

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 No real improvement in 8+years With the old Humax PVR finally giving up due to drive controller failure, it was replaced with a new one. IMHO the latest freeview play GUI is not as good as the previous releases and seems to be biased towards PayPerView services even having dedicated remote buttons. If you ignore these additions, the "box" actually does well enough to provide decent sound and a good HD picture, although the boxes SD picture via HDMI is not as good as the TV's SD picture from its own tuner on the same aeriel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Freeview TV Box Recorder Bought this for my Mom. She previously had a generic box from one of the broadband providers, but that failed and had nowhere near the features of this box. This one can record up to 4 programmes whilst watching a 5th. My Mom has quickly worked out how to use all the different functions. Very easy to understand and follow. Also has the ability to pad recordings with extra time at the beginning incase it starts early, or pad at the end if it runs over. The layout is easy to follow. My Mom loves this TV box!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy menu and setup, easy to program recordings. Small and smart looking, easy to set-up and use, seems a good, basic pvr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use and understand I bought this a week or so ago and now have it up and working. I almost did it all myself but had to purchase a male to male aerial cable 0.75m long. My son helped me finish it off so I have a number of cables that I did not use. AND a certain amount of surplus cable piled up behind the Humax. He says I am not to tidy them up as they might over heat. All in all I am happy with the set up apart from the length of some of the cables piled up behind. The service from staff was swift and courteous. Yes I have used them before to purchase a TV and will use them again if such items are required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. Bought this box to replace a Sky box. Found it quite easy to set up and use. Having had the Sky box for ten + years it took a few days to get familiar with the new box but no complaints so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for TV Recording and Viewing This was a replacement for another Humax box I had owned and used constantly for eight years and is now even better. Watch one channel live, or play back a recording whilst being able to record another channel at the same time. You cannot do that on a smart TV. Another great feature is to record a series so you don't even have to think about setting it up for each one.
