The total number of Freeview Play devices sold in the UK has now passed 5 million, Freeview and Digital UK have announced.
Freeview Play was launched in 2015 to provide UK DTT viewers with access to live, catch up and on-demand programming.
3 million are described as “active users”, a figure the company expects to grow to 4 million by the third quarter of 2019.
Jonathan Thompson, CEO, Digital UK, “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.
