Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 Freesat Box
The Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 allows you to easily create up to eight lists of your favourite channels, then use them to filter the Programme Guide, so you only see the ones you want to.
If over 150 Freesat channels are not enough, you can automatically add hundreds more non-Freesat channels, and combine them with Freesat channels on the same favourites lists.
The Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 even helps save you money thanks to its extremely low power consumption (less than 0.5W in standby), and comes recommended by the Energy Saving Trust.
The Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 offers good quality SD and high quality HD picture and sound and a straight forward epg and menu service, allowing you to find the channels you want with minimal fuss.
“This bargain Freesat HD box gives you lots of entertainment at a low price” – Computer Shopper, October 2013
“Unlike many older and cheaper set-top boxes, the Plaza HD-S2 is compatible with all the current HD channels available on Freesat” – Computeractive Magazine, October 2013
On the back of the Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 is a decent selection of sockets for the money, including an HDMI v1.3 output, Scart output (which can be connected to an older TV or external recorder), optical digital audio output, Ethernet and an LNB input. There’s a USB port too, but don’t get too excited as it’s only used for upgrading the unit’s software – it doesn’t support media playback, Wi-Fi dongles or HDD recording.
This receiver will no longer support BBC iPlayer from 1st September 2016 – more information here
