    Humax is the market leader. I have a 1tb box that has not given me a single problem since I bought it several years back.

    There isn't a lot of choice, but Humax is one of the best options, either free sat or free view via an aerial. I use a free sat version and it works fine, HD channels look great, the standard def ones a little soft. I think a sky box offers slightly better picture via standard def.

    After searching around and finding quite a few (including Humax) I settled for a Panasonic model.

    Cheap enough, looks good and works a treat ... no regrets except for a quite clunky interface (although to be honest, others I looked at weren't much better)

    If you have Sky I presume you have a satellite dish. You might be interested in this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Humax-HB-11...tronics&sr=1-2

    If you want to record you can use a usb drive or external hdd.
