Q & As

Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 Smart freesat HD Digital Receiver 4.3 5 12 12
Great product I am very happy with the Manhattan Plaza Freesat Digital receiver and also the service from John Lewis. It was very easy to set up and managed to do so myself. I had visions of having to rely on my son, yet again! but no. the picture quality is great and altogether I am very happy with the item. 09 September 2014
Exactly what it says Great product, easy to install perfect for second televisions 29 July 2014
Free sat receiver OK. Does not feel particularly good quality. Remote is small & rather 'cheap feeling' It works OK and the picture control through my John Lewis Samsung is very good. Overall rating - adequate for the price ! 10 June 2014
Manhattan plaza freesat This is a good a good product easy to set up and to use, in my appian it is good item at a reasonable price, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. 13 May 2014
Manhattan freesat box This is a very good box for the price..very quick and easy to use.. Also like that's a very small box compared to others. Picture quality is very good on sd and HD.. 29 April 2014
"does what it says on the tin" really pleased with this item, very simple to set up; and a good price. 02 April 2014
Having Problems The box keeps losing the signal. Have been in touch with Manhattan whom I must say have been quick to respond. They reckon my signal is too strong and are sending me an adaptor to put on the box. What they have failed to explain is why my cheap Bush box is working fine. 28 March 2014
I'm very pleased with the product I bought this to be able to watch BBC local news from Emley Moor. My TV has built in Freeview and I can't get pictures from Emley Moor I receive my Freeview pictures from Belmont. Most of the time we watch pictures on the Freesat box ,and they are excellent. 25 March 2014
