Freesat on-demand service grows 200%

Free UK satellite TV service Freesat has announced a strong take-up of Freetime, its connected TV service, which has seen a 200% year-on-year increase in new connected customers.

Increased awareness and understanding of the Freetime service has resulted in Freetime sales growing by 48% year-on-year for the first six months of 2015.

Overall Freesat added over 19,000 new homes in the first six months. Expansion of Freetime will continue with several new manufacturer partnerships to bring the on-demand offering to a greater number of viewers. In July, Freesat and Humax partnered to launch the HDR-1100S set-top box, the most compact and affordable Freetime PVR to date providing up to 2TB recording memory.
