Metronic Freesat HD Digital Box Now On Sale

Metronic SATHD100 Freesat HD Digital Box

Metronics first Freesat digital box is now in stock at Maplin, priced £149.99.

We questioned in a previous post why anyone would consider purchasing this HD receiver at such a high price, given that the Alba Group and Humax versions are already so established and priced significantly cheaper, but if you are considering a purchase, we’d love to hear the reasons why.

Buy online at MAPLIN for £149.99 inc P+P

Low Stock And Price Hikes For Freesat SD Receivers

It is believed that Alba Group, who currently manufacture all Freesat standard-definition digital boxes (Grundig, Goodmans and Bush) are struggling to meet the demands of their products. Supply has been massively strained over the last few weeks with many of the major retailers and independents now without stock.

In addition, it’s also suggested that Alba Group have increased their trade prices by more than £10 per unit to cover demand/manufacturing costs so expect to see retail prices rise soon to in the region of £60.

If you are looking to purchase a standard-definition Freesat Digital Box, now may be the time to buy, before either they run out everywhere, or the price increases.

Let’s hope it’s only a temporary issue as the supply has been very good for the past 8 months and the price is at an acceptable level for the products.
