Review: Manhattan Plaza HD-S Freesat HD Receiver

Manhattan Plaza HD-S - Joinfreesat score 4.5 out of 5

The latest Freesat HD digital box to launch is the Manhattan Plaza HD-S Freesat HD Satellite Receiver and we’ve managed to get hold of one pre-release for our first ever joinfreesat review. Manhattan are hoping to add to the success of the existing DS-100 Freesat SD receiver with its ‘big brother’, which includes access to high-definition channels plus a few more features.

On first inspection you notice that the case itself is of good build quality including a silver bevel on the front concealing a few buttons. The unit is also very light and well proportioned thanks to the use of an external power supply which also keeps the case cool after hours of operation. The rear panel is well catered for and includes the LNB in port, HDMI, TV Scart, VCR Scart, S/PDIF (digital optical output), Ethernet and USB.
