Freeview+ sales up

January 27, 2009

Freeview has revealed that sales of Freeview+ (PVR) boxes have reached over 900,000, up 118 per cent compared to December last year with 26 per cent of all sales were achieved in a record final quarter.

More than 17.2 million homes are now enjoying the benefits of Freeview. This growth is expected to continue as consumers rein in their expenditure in 2009 – recent research highlighted one in five plans to curtail spending on pay TV channels – and as another five million homes go through digital switchover in the next twelve months, with Freeview+ providing the most cost-effective recording solution for a digital age.
