Freeview hits 60m sales, HD in 0.25m homes

October 7, 2010

Freeview says it has now sold 60 million units in the UK and that Freeview HD is expected to reach 250,000 homes this month.

About 420,000 Freeview HD-enabled devices, including both STBs and television sets with the technology built in, have been sold. Freeview estimates that of these, 230,000 are being used to receive the Freeview HD service (rather than being connected to a BSkyB or Virgin cable box).
