    "Humax is the best on the market, it's easy to use, reliable and very well set out.
    Although if you want the better selection of HD channels freesat would be the way to go, satellite dishes are much more reliable than an aerial and you are guaranteed all the free HD channels."

    "All HD freeview boxes would gain the same amount of freeview channels. Your freeview box will tune to and gain the channels that your TV aerial is capable of receiving. has a postcode checker where you can check the channels you are likely to receive proving your aerial is up to the job.
    Most freeview boxes now also provide access to streaming services Netflix , BBC player etc. you would need to register and for some of the services pay a subscription. BT Vision boxes probably offer the greatest choice of subscription channels and packages.
    another add on that some boxes offer is the facility to record the freeview channels which is something you may want to consider.
    Boxes range from around £30.00 for the most basic HD boxes to over £200.00 for recording type boxes so budget plays a part in what you would gain from your new box."

    "Channels are broadcast from the Astra Satellite, in SD Standard definition and HD high definition. in answer, all freesat recievers will give you the same amount of channels for a non subscription service.

    if you align your dish to another European satellite you could get more channels although they would be a mixture of European channels, ie French, Italian etc."

    All Freeview boxes provide the same the number of channels*

    *The number of channels you receive will depend on the transmitter you are receiving a signal from and your aerials signal strength.

    Hope this helps"

    "They all come with the same amount of channels. If you have a new tv. This will already have freeview built in the tv. So no need to buy a box."

    "All FreeView boxes have the same amount of channels providing signal strength in you area is sufficient and the transmitter distributes all the channels.
    A freeview HD + box is the premium option. Allowing to record.

    Most TVs have a freeview tuner built in and have been in manufacture since mid 2000’s."

    "Majority of boxes will have the same free view channels on them. What/ how many channels you get all depends on your signal strength"

    "All Freeview boxes have the same number of channels.
    i.e Freeview is the program provider and is used by the box manufacture for channel provision"

    "If you buy a box that has T2 in its description it will pick up the HD channels. How many you get depends on the transmitter in your area. If it's a relay you will get a few, if it's a major you will get more.

    For biggest choice have a look at Freesat."

    "All Freeview boxes have the same amount of channels. Freesat has more extra channels but requires a satellite dish.
    If wanting more variation of channels then you would need an Internet smart fire stick type device for online viewing"
