Manhattan Plaza HD-S Freesat HD Digital Box
Brand new complete with 12 months manufacturers warranty
The Manhattan Plaza HDS is the very latest Freesat HD Digital Box bringing you low-cost standard and high-definition television for the Freesat platform; offering good quality SD and HD picture and sound, with a straight forward epg and menu service, allowing you to find the channels you want with minimal fuss. Great price, easy to use, incredibly reliable from a reputable manufacturer.
What Satellite & Digital TV (issue #305) awarded the Plaza HD-S 10/10 for Value and 9/10 for Performance, Navigation and Setup, stating in its verdict, "The Plaza HD-S is an extremely capable Freesat HD receiver. The simple switching between Freesat and non-Freesat channel lists and the inclusion of both types of channel in the favourites makes this receiver a good choice for anyone wanting everything that 28E has to offer. Its reception performance is excellent and it will even find enthusiast friends. That it's probably the cheapest Freesat HD receiver around as well makes choosing the HD-S a no-brainer."
Joinfreesat awarded the HD-S an overall score of 4.5/5, stating "The receiver serves its purpose for those that just want a basic Freesat receiver capable of accessing both SD and HD channels in good quality with simplistic functionality. The HD-S is priced to take a large share of the Freesat HD market and we firmly believe at around £85 (rrp) it will be successful; if it can also retain the reliability of the existing DS-100 we think this little box will be a winner.
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!
