  • 7-day catch-up services from the UK’s main broadcasters
  • expensive, no Netflix or LoveFilm, no wifi
  • The DTR-1000 worked well during our time testing it at home, and its slow start was probably due to the simple fact that its £250 starting price is fairly expensive compared to most ordinary Freeview boxes. However, BT and TalkTalk are both currently offe...
