We have been told that the eagerly anticipated Manhattan Plaza HD-S Freesat HD Receiver will be available from the end of the month.
Following the huge success of the SD variant (Manhattan DS-100), the latest high-definition single tuner receiver is expected to turn the Freesat HD range on its head, offering all the same functionality as the existing receivers available for a fraction of the price.
What Satellite & Digital TV magazine were the first to review this new model and gave it an impressive 81%, which for a lesser known brand receiver is quite impressive, given they usually favour the more main stream products. The key points they highlighted were the excellent quality picture and sound which was well above what they expected for the price, and that switching between Freesat and non-Freesat modes is easy, which will suit those wanting to access a few more FTA channels.
We have created a product page here, and more information (and to buy the product) can be found on the Satbuyer website, who are hoping to obtain the first stock of any independent retailer towards the end of next week.
The Manhattan HD-S is expecting to retail for between £85-£100.
