The best hd satellite

The easiest way to hundreds of channels, free HD and On Demand TV*, all subscription free

Winner of Best Freesat Receiver in the 2013 AVTech Media Awards, the HD-S2 is the most compact freesat HD receiver available, and comes bursting with unique features.

For over 180 Freesat channels, with 11 in amazing HD, simply connect the Plaza HD-S2 to a suitable dish (an existing Sky dish can be used) and follow the on-screen setup instructions. Connect by HDMI to a suitable TV and enjoy free HD channels with cinema-quality Dolby Digital + sound (when broadcast). Even standard channels look fantastic thanks to advanced up-scaling to HD.

On Demand TV* including BBC iPlayer & ITV Player means that even if you do miss a programme, you can catch-up with the best of the week's TV, at a time that suits you.

Freesat comes with an 8-day Programme Guide so you can plan your viewing a week ahead. The powerful reminder and timer functionality allows you to easily set the Plaza HD-S2 to turn itself off or on at any time to any channel or programme of your choosing.

If over 180 Freesat channels are not enough the Plaza HD-S2 can automatically add hundreds more non-Freesat† channels. And for true power viewing, the Plaza HD-S2 makes it easy to create and use 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.

Comprehensive connectivity

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 using the SCART output. The Ethernet port connects the Plaza HD-S2 to your network for On Demand TV and there's a USB port for offline updates.

Energy Saving

The Plaza HD-S2 will even help save you money due to its extremely low power consumption (less than 1/2W in standby) and comes recommended by the Energy Saving Trust.

Winner of Best Freesat Receiver in the 2013 AVTech Media Awards

The Plaza HD-S2 was chosen as Best Freesat Receiver in the 2013 AVTech Media Awards, from the publishers of Home Cinema Choice, What Satellite & Digital TV and HiFi Choice.

The awards were included as a supplement with the December 2013 issues of their magazines. They concluded:

"Freesat’s free-to-air offerings provide an appealing alternative to subscription-based TV platforms, and while higher-end Freesat HD boxes carry multiple tuners and PVR facilities, our award winner is this straightforward hi-def model with a recession-proof £50 price tag. The diminutive Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 delivers a cracking picture with HD channels, support for BBC iPlayer and ITV Player and easy access to non-Freesat unencrypted channels carried via the relevant satellites. All of the usual Freesat HD features – EPG, digital teletext, subtitles, audio descriptions, etc – are present and correct too."

"The only single-tuner freesat HD receiver you need in your home."

The leading independent freesat website joinfreesat awarded the Plaza HD-S2 9/10 in their review, concluding:

"To say it is perfect for use in a bedroom or kitchen would do it an injustice, because unless you want recording features, fancy guides and more interactive facilities, this would also serve the purpose incredibly well as a main living room device for accessing all your favourite channels.

We have no hesitation in offering a high score; it's worthy of being the only single-tuner freesat HD receiver you need in your home."

* The Plaza HD-S2 must be connected via Ethernet to a minimum actual broadband speed of 2Mbps for On Demand TV services. Please be aware that BBC iPlayer and ITV Player will no longer be available from 30th September 2016
