DVB-T2 Freeview HD sales exceed 1.19 million

Freeview is estimating that around 642,000 homes are now watching the Freeview HD high definition Digital Terrestrial Transmissions (DTT), based on sales of 1.19 million units in the nine months since the service went live. This strong growth in HD is despite the fact that several large regions still have still to make the switch to DTT. The figures draw on sales data from GfK and follow a strong Christmas sales period where almost a quarter of IDTV’s sold had an in-built HD DTT tuner.
Both the Anglia and Central regions will make the switch by the end of the year. After this has been completed, 98.5% of the country will have made the change to DTT and have access to Freeview HD transmissions.
