Freetime growth drives strong quarter for Freesat

Freesat, the subscription free satellite TV service, today announces a strong final quarter to 2015, with the addition of 36,000 new homes in the three months to December 2015.

After adding 61,000 homes over the course of 2015, Freesat is now available in over 1.93 million households and is watched by more than four million viewers every week.

Freesat’s connected TV guide solution Freetime, which is available on set-top boxes and TVs, has seen a 13 per cent year-on-year increase in sales for 2015. More than 700,000 people have downloaded the Freetime app which is available across iOS, Android and Kindle and is free to download.

“The most recent quarter’s figures highlight the growing appetite for subscription-free connected TV,” comments Alistair Thom, Freesat’s managing director. “We invest in developing market-leading technology and delivering quality content to provide an unbeatable connected-TV experience, at no monthly fee. We offer over 200 subscription-free channels and popular On Demand players, more than any other free-to-air provider, which continues to attract customers.”
