i-Can Easy HD 2851T

iCan Easy HD

Review The Easy HD 2851T from iCan has, without a doubt, the most colourful and polished interface of any of the Freeview HD boxes I’ve seen. There’s help built in, and a quick introduction appears when you start setting up, too. It’s all colourful, clear and straightforward.

Press buttons on the remote and you’ll see a message indicating which channel you’re changing too. The EPG is clear, with the highlighted channel always centre-screen, and you can browse all the data from the now/next box too.

There’s access to BBC iPlayer built in, and a card slot that supports the Nagra encryption used by ESPN - and most likely by Sky Sports.

Set against that, there’s no Dolby transcoding, and no media playback from USB or network sources.

Verdict

Keenly priced - it's cheaper than most of the other boxes reviewed here - with a slick interface, all that’s missing from this excellent box is media playback. ®
