Freeview growth continues

The proportion of households in the UK receiving digital television services on the primary TV set increased to 70.2% during the three months to June 2006. This accounts for 17.7 million households, an increase of 168,000.
However, sales of DTT equipment during the quarter reached 1.2 million, which together with the previous figures shows that many households are now converting secondary TV sets.
DTT only households reached 6,402 million by the end of June, an increase of 15,000 from the previous quarter.
