Freesat UK (Arris) Recordable 4K Set Top Box. Review Update 2


Freesat – Subscription Free UK TV

In February 2020, Freesat launched a new 4K / UHD satellite receiver, manufactured by Arris. This is the “non recording” version, with a recording version, with 500gb, 1tb and 2tb hard drives, to be released “later”.

Back in March 2020 I did a set up and review of this new Freesat 4K set top box from Arris – See this video here

In June 2020 I decided to give the box another go, after a firmware update – See this video here where the box became so unresponsive.

Now, in August 2020, the box received another new firmware.

I am hoping this firmware fixed the problems with the unresponsive box….
