Freeview play recorder with Netflix and NowTV


Standard Member
I have read the other posts on here looking for Freeview play recommendations, but I thought I'd see if there's anything new?
This is my first foray into Freeview stbs, and I'm struggling to find anything that meets all my requirements, which I'm surprised at, as I thought by now they would have cracked this.
I'm looking for the following features:Freeview play, recorder, Netflix, prime video, now TV, intuitive user interface, snappy to use and reliable. Like sky+ but for Freeview.

I've looked at the humax aura, but doesn't support Netflix or NowTV natively, looks like humax 5000 is 4yrs old, is super slow, no prime/NowTV and has lots of complaints, Manhattan T3 doesn't support Netflix, and BT youview seems to be being discontinued. So not a lot to choose from. Am I missing something? Am I asking too much?? Is there anything else I should be looking at?
