”The Manhattan T3-R Freeview Play recorder is an excellent performer that benefits from a well-designed and intuitive user interface.” ’AV Forums’ – Highly Recommended.

Watch, record and catch-up

The Manhattan T3R meets all your TV needs in a single box. As well as getting access to all the 85 Freeview channels, you can also record your favourite programmes on the capacious 500GB hard drive. Alternatively, enjoy TV on demand from the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, UKTV Play, My5 and many others.

Freeview Play – catch-up TV made easy
Connect the box to your Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and you can enhance your TV viewing with effortless catch-up TV. Catching up on programmes you've missed is easy - simply use the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) to 'scroll' back on the last seven days TV programmes. With support for the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub*, All 4 and My5, the great majority of the last seven days’ worth of TV are just a scroll away (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps). *ITV Hub is available in England, Wales and The Channel Islands.

YouTube on your TV
Supporting YouTube and YouTube kids, you can now watch one of the most popular video services on your TV – beats crowding around a tablet or laptop.

Record up to 300 hours of TV
With its built-in 500GB hard drive, the T3R stores up to 300 hours of TV. Perfect for recording series and watching in your own time or for recording all your favourite programmes while you’re away. Unlike catch-up TV, once you’ve recorded a programme, there’s no time limit on how long you’ve got to watch it.

Rewind and pause live TV and record two programmes at once
Featuring twin tuners, the T3R has the ability to pause and rewind live TV – perfect if you miss a crucial moment while you’ve just popped out of the room. A further benefit is being able to record two programmes at once – ideal for those times when all the good TV is on at the same time.

Ultra HD and HDR support for ultimate picture quality
Compatible with Ultra HD (4K) and HDR, the Manhattan makes the perfect match for the latest TVs and high quality streaming services.

Easy to use
The Electronic Programme Guide makes watching TV, past and present, easy. The T3R’s remote is programmable to learn your TV’s volume, power and input settings, meaning you just need the one remote for everyday TV watching.

Make keeping track of all your favourite TV a pleasure again, with the Manhattan T3R.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best freeview recorder I've had. I Bought this over 1 month ago and up to now has been faultless. I was looking for an option to Sky due to their price increases. I have had other makes of freeview in the past that just didn't perform well (freezing, missing the beginning or end of programs or not recording at all). To date this Manhattan freeview recorder has been excellent, easy to set up, easy to use. The T3R works perfectly, plenty channels to choose from and also connects to the internet quite easily when setting it up. As usual Richer Sounds gave an excellent service and the fact this has a 6 year warranty made it an excellent choice and is saving us several hundred pounds a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast responsive and easy to set up I bought this for my mother and she has found herself around it quickly. One of the best points is the quickness of operation, most freeview boxes and TVs with Freeview built in are too slow resulting in too much button pressing. Screen menus are easy to read and intuitive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good. Better than expected Daunting menu at first but stick with it...easy peasy ...better than some.. GOOD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit quirky but you get used to it Works well, but some surprises. Fast forward & back works different from what I am used to with other DVRs. Another surprise: After setting it up, wading through the license agreement, scanning for channels, adjusting audio time delay... I setup WiFi and the next thing was that it wanted to download new firmware. After doing that, it reset and then you have to start all over again as all (!) setup including channels and WiFi had been forgotten. Not very nice and I am not looking forward to the next firmware update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture quality, intuitive menu Setup took 15 minutes out of the box. Easy and quick to schedule and playback recordings. Excellent sound and picture quality. Only had to consult the manual once - to delete recordings! Manhattan, it would be nice to have an app like Humax to set the recorder remotely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Free view recorder Out of the box works well. Don’t really like the black background on the TV guide - very hard to read as there is no real contrast. Also can not adjust the sound on the HD channels with the Manhattan remote

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid box Very simple to use, only slight issue I have noticed was the picture and sound was slightly out of sync, however it was possible to correct this with a bit of fiddling. One thing to note is it doesn't have any of the paid TV apps (e.g. Netflix/Amazon) and there is no option to add extra apps. But if you are not after these it is a very quick and easy to use freeview recorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use I bought this 3 weeks ago and I’m delighted with the picture quality & sound. It was easy to set up (I’m a bit of a technophobe). Recordings are stored in folders so you can easily find each episode. Remote is really easy to navigate. Very happy with this product.
