Freesat, the subscription free satellite TV service, has maintained its 2015 momentum by adding 6,000 new TV homes in the three months to the end of September.

In total, 25,000 new households have taken up the service to date in 2015. Growth of Freesat’s award-winning Freetime service has also remained strong with 60% year-on-year growth.

“It’s been another busy quarter for Freesat and we’re pleased that six new channels see the value in joining the platform,” comments  Alistair Thom, managing director of Freesat. “The launch of Fox’s Your TV and PBS America on free-to-air for the first time only reinforces the strength of free TV in the UK, proving that you don’t need a pay TV subscription to enjoy great telly.”
