Continued growth for Freeview
New Zealand’s free-to-air service broadcast direct from both satellite and terrestrial DTT continues to attract viewers.
By the end of June 123,903 receivers were sold, up from 100,000 in mid-April.
Now around 300,000 New Zealanders, 8% of the population, have access to Freeview in their homes, 15 months after its launch.
Freeview on the DTT network has attracted 7,594 viewers since its launch in April and DTT viewer numbers are expected to increase with the recent launch of Sony Bravia V and W series DTT receivers with integral HD decoders, in the country.
