9.3 million DTT homes in the UK
Ofcoms latest quarterly report for the period from July to September 2007 indicates that multichannel TV viewing takes place in 86% of UK homes. The increase is attributed to the growth in digital terrestrial television, which saw its second largest increase with almost 2.4 million purchases of Freeview equipment during the quarter. Whilst many consumers have already converted their primary television sets for digital the total number of secondary sets also converted now stands at nearly 12 million.
The total number now using Freeview as their only digital platform has reached 9.3 million and 14 million homes now have a Freeview device connected to at least one television in their home.
