Great Channels, Subscription Free
The Humax HB-1100S set top box features the latest Freesat software that gives you over 200 TV and radio channels without a subscription. Connect your set top box to a satellite dish and to the internet via WiFi or Ethernet cable and start enjoying your new channels immediately. The new Freesat Showcase feature is a section curated by TV experts where you can see the top picks on what to watch tonight and over the weekend. Should you miss the programmes and not record them, the catch-up section will allow you (currently on 26 channels) to use a rollback guide and watch what you have missed.

Make Your TV Work Smarter
The HB-1100S is a smart set top box as it allows you to have full control of how and what you watch. You can record your programs onto an external USB stick or hard drive (minimum 64GB of storage). Once you have a storage device plugged in you can also take advantage of the pause/rewind function when watching live TV. If you are out on the go and see a program you would like to record, you can open the Freesat app to easily set a recording. You can also use the TV guide to plan your recordings for the next seven days. The Freesat app also allows you to turn your phone into a remote control, so if you ever lose it down the sofa you always have a backup to hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax freesat box Bought this to replace an older version of humax box. Easy to set up, provided you have an easily accessible satellite feed. It can be used instead of an old sky box without any adjustment. (But does not include Sky Q). Did not use the wifi connection as I already had a feed in place to my router. It is much quicker than the previous box and I particularly like the program guide where you can scroll back a week and play programs you've missed without going directly to iplayer. There are now lots of HD channels and unlike sky don't have to pay for them. Excellent picture quality and good value for money.

Can I watch one channel whilst recording another? I only have the standard dish with one LNB.

Asked by: smaclr
Even if this box could record 2 channels at once (which it cannot), the fact that you only have a SINGLE LNB means you would only be able to record ONE channel ... and it would be the one you were watching.

Can you record programs, if so, how many at one time 

Asked by: Ronnie
If you connect an external hard drive it can only record the channel you are watching.

I am using virgin at present but I have a satalite  dish still in situe. Can I connect this item up to the dish as is or will I need to have an aerial installed. Thanks

Asked by: Paulus
As this is a Freesat box, it would require a Satellite signal not an aerial. If you already have a satellite in place this would work fine.

how do I format my usb stick to my humax hb 1100s box

Asked by: mr grumpy
Unfortunately Maplins have given inaccurate information here. You cannot use a USB memory stick for recording. It has to be an externally powered hard drive of at least 80gb capacity.

If we have Sky can we use this in a second room to view the freesat chanells, to avoid having to have multiroom? Understand we won't be able to watch the sky chanells through this.

Asked by: Mcobie
Only if your Sky dish has the extra cabling from the LNB to the second room (you cannot share the existing cables) N.B. This will not work if your primary Sky dish/box is Sky Q
