Tesco Manhattan Freesat HD Box - includes Dish and Install £45

40
Found 22nd Oct 2013
Manhattan Freesat HD Box (not recorder) - includes a number to call to arrange free dish installation - just bought mine from Failsworth Tesco (still 2 on the shelf).

Seems a good price - just moved to new house with no dish but already have a Humax Freesat box - so hope its a dual/quad lnb they install.

Bought one last year at £80 for parents. Works well. Beware of cable length from dish to box. over 20M & they charge additional £40.

Good price and review posted is decent. Heat given.

Just wondering , what channels we get other than freeview offers ?

You do not get Freeview on this, check out the Freesat web page for channel listings.

I think the main one that was missing last time I checked was Dave (ironically)

Repost, got mine already as it's a good deal and you get a bog standard LNB although i'm sure if you ask you could get quad installed.

freesat.co.uk/cha…els

you get all the standard channels and some more.generally freesat offers more than freeview.
also you can align the dish to a different direction and get huge number and variety of European / Middle Eastern channels including many in HD,but very few are in English.you can also fit 2 LNBs on a dish and get both standard UK free to view channels and those foreign ones via one single dish.

The review page says this receiver does not search for other satellites,meaning it's only good if you want to get standard UK freesat channels.

If only the UKTV channels (Dave, etc) were available on Freesat as well as Freeview.

I cannot fix a dish in my flat, currently i have my freeview hd tv connected to outside (common dish i beleive for whole aprtment) can I use this to connect this box ?

Your TV is connected to a community TV Aerial, this item requires a dish.

Maplin is a rip off. Just search for "Sky shotgun cable" on eBay. It will be a LOT cheaper.

Great deal!

Anyone had any luck getting them to install the dish on another sat, say 19.2e?

Rang Tesco in Liverpool. The girl checked a few local stores, including her own, but no joy. She couldn't find anything on the system (except the 320Gb box) but reckoned there might still be some on the shelves despite this.

Just picked one up late tonight from Tesco Walkden still one left on the shelf.

Just got one from Failsworth store still one left if it helps anyone. Can I set this up straight away on Sky dish?

there were 3 in bursledon tesco this evening...in the reduced section next to the TVs on the top floor.

While you are at it, it might be worth checking to see if there are any of these in the clearance section (unlikely but you never know)

Doesn't include install, but when bought with the manhattan you could have a multiroom solution, one with recording function for under a ton.

Yes, if you mean to take the place of an old sky box. You would need a quad LNB for use alongside a skybox though, eg in another room.

Just picked one up in St. Helens. They've still got 5 left. Price on shelf says £60 but scan through till at £45.

My dad, whose Freeview keeps breaking up, is going halves with me. He's keeping the box and I'm having the installation done on my new flat.

Going to ask them if they'll install it on 19.2e then get Sky to come round and install a second dish on 28.2e, as I'm also a customer with them. If not I'll have to get the ladder out and realign it myself. Will save me a couple of hundred quid over a motorised system and still pick up the majority of channels I want.

Many thanks to both OP's.

What outputs does it have for HD on the back apart from HDMI? Also is there something separately I can buy to record? Thanks in advance

Had install this morning. Only a single feed - I had a quad lnb (£5 from amazon) he fitted for me but he wanted £60 to run more than 1 cable from dish to receiver - so I politely declined.

He said Freesat give Tesco the receiver free - Freesat pay Tesco a commission for each one they sell - and freesat also pay euro aerials per install.

I thought Freesat were non profit ?

Anyway - an excellent deal - local installer willing to run an extra cable from dish for £15 - so result !!

I have a Humax Freesat recorder to put with the dish - will ebay the Manhattan receiver which should result in a nearly free dish install.

Dave

If you'd bought your own shotgun cable he probably would have installed that instead of having to pay him to lay a second cable.

got one of these 2 weeks ago for £45, guy came to set dish up last week all good. see they are up to £60 this week.
Apparently they are being discontinued so may come back down in price. Keep an eye out in larger Tesco stores.
