Following up on the award winning and much loved Plaza HD-S comes the Plaza HS-S2, a freesat HD receiver that manages to pack an awful lot into something that’s only slightly bigger than a large VHS tape.
The Freesat HD reciever gives you access to over 150 digital channels, and can also scan and store non-freesat channels so you have everything in one place.
Even better the Plaza HD-S only costs £50 with no hidden fees or recurring charges attached.
A nice perk was the low power consumption or less than 1/2 Watt on standby so you’re incidental costs won’t run too high.
There’s also limited on-demand support with the iPlayer and ITV Player, although there’s currently no support for 4OD, YouTube or Netflix (which is where I watch most of my TV these days). Internet access is
The inability to record and limited on-demand support (coupled with the low-low price of £50) make me think that this is much more of a bedroom/kitchen viewing device than a living room one. Premium features such as an HDD or a second tuner are omitted so if you really need to pause or rewind live TV, watch one channel whilst simultaneously recording another this is not the box for you.
But if you need a single tuner freesat HD reciever you need this box.
