    No, I'm pretty sure we will need a forum.

    I did say...

    ...and it being Freesat I'm not confident.

    £400 is expensive for a satellite box and freesat will struggle at that price point. Surely something similar to the freeview play model is all that is required at the moment, with capability of online 4K apps iPlayer, Netflix, primevideo? The box is affordable, doesn’t it have a 4K setting? 4K on satellite that is free won’t happen just yet.

    I agree, but there is no news that I've seen on what price Arris/Freesat are aiming at. Do you have some new info?

    Where has the price point of £400 emerged from?

    Haven't visited the forum for a while. Yes, ARRIS are the Freesat partner for the new boxes. I can talk (some) about this at last :-). They have some of their best people on this, including some of the UK people (ex Pace) I know.
