The first of the next generation Freesat <free time> boxes launches this week, with Humax leading the way. The HDR-1000S will be available in-stores from tomorrow as well as available to buy online.
The new product with more focus on interactive services, including the 7 day roll-back TV guide, plus access to on-demand, has received a lot of attention over the past few weeks, and expectations are that it will be a great success.
The main retailers stocking this item can be found on our Humax HDR-1000S product page should you wish to be one of the first to get your hands on the new device.
The only disappointing thing we have come across so far is that Humax have introduced a new distribution policy which means many of the smaller retailers and installers won’t be able to get their hands on them, and in turn, won’t be able to offer you the best prices. For now you will have to buy from the major retailers at the rrp price.
Don’t forget to let us know your opinions of the new receiver once you have it, and leave a review on the product page.
Humax have been reading the comments regarding the new distribution policy and would like to add the following statement:
Humax has a newly-implemented distribution policy, which is designed to ensure a consistent quality approach to sales and promotion for our products and the best possible experience for consumers. The approved distribution network is open for retailers of any size who meet the criteria, including independents who remain a valued part of our distribution strategy. We expect distribution of the HDR-1000S to expand across more retail partners in the coming weeks
