Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 Freesat HD Digital Box

Brand new complete with 12 months manufacturers warranty

Manhattan Plaza HDS2 freesat HD Digital Box We are delighted to offer the successor to the award-winning Plaza HD-S, the Manhattan Plaza HD-S2. It is the most compact freesat HD receiver available, and comes bursting with unique features, all available from leading Manhattan retailer Satbuyer, at a very low price for a combined SD/HD receiver.

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.

Manhattan Plaza HDS2 Freesat HD Digital Box The 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.

Joinfreesat awarded the HD-S2 an overall score of 9/10, stating "worthy of being the only single-tuner freesat HD receiver you need in your home". What Satellite Magazine followed up with a score of 86%, Trusted Reviews with 8/10 and Recombu remarked "The Manhattan Plaza HD S2 is excellent value for money. For £50 we canít really find fault with it."

The freesat platform uses the same satellite setup as BSkyB, so if you already have this in place and working, you'll just need to purchase the freesat Digital Box of choice, plug in and enjoy!

Please note that this is not a freesat+ PVR unit. This is the single tuner Freesat HD receiver with no record functionality.

Bought in September 2014 and has given excellent service BUT I can no longer get BBC Iplayer. Phoned Manhattan this morning and they say the problem HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM, and there is nothing they can do about it. Very disappointing in a unit 2years old.

Delivery was extremely fast, sent on Monday and received at 8.30 on Wednesday Morning. It was simple to set up and worked perfectly. Thank you Satbuyer.

Ordered this item on the 17th Aug and received on the 21st Aug. Allowing for the weekend what an excellent service from Satbuyer. Kept informed by delivery companys tracking service and delivered on time when they said they would. As for the product what an excellent piece of equipment for the price and so easy to setup. Highly recommend this product and Satbuyer, definately buy from them again.
