About the Metronic SATHD100 Digital Receiver
The Metronic SATHD100 is the first Freesat digital box to be released which isn’t from one of the original manufacturers, Humax and Alba. Agreement was made between Metronic and Freesat soon after the Freesat platform launched, but was unable to launch until after the 6 month exclusive agreement was concluded.
The Metronic SATHD100 launched late December. The SATHD100 is the same as the existing Freesat HD digital boxes in all respects, with a single tuner capable of receiving both SD and HD channels. There will also be a non-Freesat mode.
The one thing the Metronic SATHD100 has over the existing single tuner HD receivers is the USB functionality, allowing you to play audio and video files, plus view images from an external hard drive device. You cannot however record programmes onto an external device.
