First Freeview HD box launches in John Lewis


The UK’s first Freeview HD box, the Humax HD-FOX T2 went on sale on Saturday 13 February at John Lewis on Oxford Street. The new receivers were available exclusively at the John Lewis flagship store over the weekend before going on widespread sale with other retailers from 15th February 2010.

Once connected to an HD Ready TV (via the HDMI cable supplied), the Humax HD-FOX T2 allows the viewer to watch BBC HD and ITV1 HD. Channel 4 HD and S4C in Wales will launch shortly. In addition to the high definition channels viewers also have access to 50 standard definition digital TV, 24 radio channels and the interactive red button service.

John Kempner, Central Buyer for Vision, John Lewis comments: “Our customers are early adopters of the latest technology and we expect the arrival of Freeview HD and the new Humax HD-FOX T2 to be very popular. All of our TVs are now HD Ready and this new technology allows customers to get the best picture quality from their TV with a one off payment.”
