Humax DTRT1000 YouView PVR down to £249

YouView, the hybrid video-on-demand and terrestrial television service backed by the main operators and broadcasters in the UK, is mostly available through TalkTalk and BT.

But you can also grab a PVR from Humax that will allow you to play YouView content, giving you access to online as well as over-the-air entertainment.

The Humax DTRT1000 is available for as little as £249 with free delivery from UK retailer SuperFi, a 17 per cent discount off its recommended retail price.

The box comes with unlimited access to 4000 shows and films as well as the the ability to add Sky Sports and Sky Movies Boosts with a 30-day minimum commitment instead of an annual contract.

In addition, it features 7-day catch up, the ability to record and play up to 74 Freeview channels and a 500GB storage capacity.

Rounding things out, the Humax DTR-T1000 sports DVB-T tuners, an HDMI output socket, an Ethernet port, Dolby Digital Plus sound, but unfortunately no Wi-Fi connectivity.

TalkTalk offers the YouView service from as little as £14.50 per month with a £50 installation fee and line rental of £9.50 per month.

It's an attractive all-around proposition, especially as you get unlimited broadband with HomeSafe security, a 12 month Lovefilm Instant subscription, and unlimited anytime calls to UK landlines including 0845 and 0870 numbers thrown in
