About the Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 freesat HD Digital Box
The successor to the award-winning Plaza HD-S, the HD-S2 is the most compact freesat HD receiver available, and comes bursting with unique features.
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 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.
