What's new?

What's new with the Manhattan T4 range?

Here’s a breakdown of everything new and improved in our T4 range.

The T4 builds on the strengths of the T3 and T1, with more powerful hardware for improved performance. It introduces many new features while retaining the user-friendly interface that our customers love, adding significantly more flexibility and customisation.

Our blog covers the redesigned TV Guide in Deep Dive #1: Unveiling the T4's redesigned TV Guide, which makes browsing and catching up easier. Deep Dive #2: Search and discover great telly explains how you can quickly find or discover new shows. Our next deep dive will cover the recording and playback features.

The T4 needs a a rooftop aerial to pick up most live TV and radio channels. We don’t recommend using an indoor aerial. You can stream some channels over the internet, but they cannot be recorded.

If you don’t have an aerial but do have a satellite dish, check out our Manhattan SX Freesat HD Box. It offers access to hundreds of TV and radio channels, making it an excellent, budget-friendly alternative for former Sky subscribers.

The T4 works perfectly as a Freeview TV box without an internet connection, and you can use the TV Guide to browse shows for the next seven days. However, to access all features, including catch-up and on-demand services, you need to connect it to the internet. You can easily set it up using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable for a wired connection. Being online also ensures your T4 receives the latest software updates automatically. If you choose not to connect to the internet, you can still download updates from our website and install them using a USB stick.

Yes, the T4 allows you to pause live TV for up to 90 minutes. However, if you want to rewind live TV without pausing it first, you'll need the T4•R, which continuously records the channel you're watching to its hard drive.

With Freeview, you can get over 100 channels, all with no subscription. The exact number of channels you'll get depends on the coverage at your address. Use the Freeview Channel Checker to find out the ones available to you.

The T4 is a subscription-free experience that delivers the best of British TV: BBC iPlayer, ITVX, 4 (Channel 4), My5, UKTV Play, GREAT! Player, Watch Free UK, PBS America, POP Player, BBC Sounds, STV Player, S4C / Clic, and Explore Freeview Play.

YouTube is coming later this year. We don’t currently include or have plans to include premium subscription apps like Netflix and Prime.

The T4 can search for any live TV programme scheduled within the next seven days. It also searches for any on-demand and catch-up programme available from the apps.

Yes, the T4 remote can adjust your TV's volume, turn it on or off, and change its input by learning from your TV's remote.

Yes, if it's connected to the internet through Ethernet or Wi-Fi, the T4 will automatically look for updates every night and install them if it finds any. If your T4 isn't online, you can update it by downloading the update files onto a USB stick and plugging that into the T4.

If you'd rather updates didn't happen on their own, you can turn off Automatic Updates. To do this and to manually check for updates, go to: Settings > System > Software Updates.

The T4 is designed to save energy. It typically uses less than 6W when on, only 0.9W when asleep with Wi-Fi, and just 0.3W with Ethernet.

It also has a feature called Auto Standby. If you don't press any buttons on the remote for 3 hours, it will automatically go into standby mode. You can adjust or turn off this feature by going to: Settings > System > Standby Options.
