“If you like to record this is a must.”

Masie’s customer review of the Manhattan T2-R - June 2019  

Record entire series

Let the Manhattan T2•R record every episode of a series for you. Then watch whenever you want.

Pause & rewind Live TV

Whether you need to make a cup of tea or skip back and replay a great moment, the T2•R is always recording the channel that you’re watching.

Recording that’s smart

Record two programmes at once. Need to record more? The T2•R will suggest alternative broadcasts to make it work.

See & feel the difference

Connect by HDMI and experience stunning HD with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. The T2•R even upscales SD channels for enhanced viewing.

The joy of free

Freeview has over 70 TV channels, 15 HD channels* and 27 of the top 30 channels in the UK**. With 95% of the nation’s favourite programmes***, there’s no need to pay for channels you don’t watch. Simply connect the Manhattan T2•R to your aerial.

A remote you won’t want to put down

Our learning remote has a spacious, clean layout and sleek, rounded shape that sits perfectly in your hand. And because it can control your TV’s volume, power and input selection, you won’t need another remote.

Internet channels

Connect by Ethernet to your home network and enjoy a great range of channels featuring free and premium online content.

Free 2-year warranty

We back the T2•R with a 2-year warranty and in-house technical support right here in the UK. Simply register within 30 days of purchase to activate.

Free HDMI cable

The T2•R delivers exceptional value and even includes a 1.2M HDMI cable.

No HDMI input on your TV?

The T2•R was designed for HD, which requires HDMI. However, if you have an older TV that doesn’t have HDMI, the T2•R can still almost certainly be connected to it using the Manhattan Analogue AV Kit (not included). Your TV simply needs either of these inputs.
