Product information

The Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 freesat HD receiver will unlock a whole new world of online and satellite entertainment. Enjoy over 200 channels with 11 in HD, as well as on-demand TV courtesy of BBC iPlayer and ITV Player. Complete with an in-depth 8-day planner, you’ll always be able to keep up with you favourite TV programmes.

Key benefits:

  • Combining freesat HD, BBC iPlayer and ITV Player, the Plaza HD-S2 delivers over 200 channels of viewing pleasure. Complete with an easy-to-use electronic programme guide, setting reminders has never been easier.
  • Make the most of your home cinema and enjoy cinema-quality Dolby Digital + sound from your broadcasts.
  • For perfect picture and sound make a direct digital connection to your HDTV using HDMI or use the digital optical audio output to connect to an external sound system. Connecting to non-HD equipment is no problem as the HD-S boasts twin SCART outputs. The Ethernet port connects the Plaza HD-S to your network for On Demand TV and there's a USB port for offline updates.
  • Enjoy your favourite TV programmes in a new way with built-in upscaling that makes SD content HD.
  • The Plaza HD-S will even help save you money due to its extremely low power consumption (less than 0.5W in standby) and comes recommended by the Energy Saving Trust.
  • Control what you watch and when you watch it with the new and improved Plaza HD-S2 v2 Remote. The updated version is approximately 25% bigger with larger buttons, a more spacious layout and an ergonomically shaped rear, so it fits comfortably in all hands.

Please note: To enjoy freesat broadcasts you will need a dish and cabling installed. Freesat does not require a contract or a subscription – just a one-off payment for your dish and installation.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Very easy to use and set up, good all round product 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Freesat made easy! Just moved to a house with a Sky satellite dish already in place. Didn't want a subscription service, so bought this little box to do the job. Just plugged in the dish and followed the simple instructions (already had an HDMI capable TV). Surprised to find the added bonus of an ethernet connection too, so plugged into my router. Everything works great, and with the ethernet link, have On Demand (iPlayer) too. Highly recommend for a simple and non-expensive solution. 16 March 2015
