Freeview Play device sales pass five million mark

In Industry News On

Freeview and Digital UK have announced that the total number of Freeview Play devices sold in the UK has now surpassed five million. Freeview Play was launched in 2015 to provide viewers of the UK’s favourite television platform with access to the best in live, catch up and on-demand programming.

Freeview has also revealed that over three million of these devices are being used by active users. Freeview Play active users are predicted to surpass four million in the third quarter of 2019, making it the UK’s fastest growing TV platform.

In January the platform will launch its Mobile App, offering catch up and live TV on the go. Further manufacturer and content announcements are due early next year.

Digital UK chief executive Jonathan Thompson commented: “Three million active users in three years demonstrates that collaboration can work for industry and viewers. With the launch of our Mobile App, new device and content partners, it’s looking like a very promising 2019.”

Technical development of Freeview Play, including product specification, is being led by Digital UK.
