The service allows Freesat customers the opportunity to access movies plus other TV programmes via your Internet connection, for a monthly subscription fee of £4.99 per month, and will be available from around the start of December.
Movies available include box office hits such as Mission Impossible 3, King Kong and Bruno, plus some classics like Back To The Future and Weird Science.
To access the service you will need a minimum broadband connection speed of 2Mpbs connected from your router to the Humax receiver via the Ethernet connection, or wireless if you have that facility.
If you have a Humax Freesat receiver and wish to join the service, visit http://tv.bibc.com/freesat_beta/ where you can register for the trial, check out the movies available and subscribe using your credit or debit card.
BoxOffice365 is on Freesat channel 907 where you’ll be prompted to press the red button.
If any of you take up the service, we’d very much welcome your thoughts by posting a comment or emailing us direct.
