Freeview Play, the on demand platform attached to the UK’s free-to-air service, ended 2019 with close to 7 million users.
Freeview, which is backed by Britain’s public service broadcasters says a total of 9 million devices have been installed.
The free service offers more than 20,000 hours of free, on-demand content from many of the 85 linear channels on the platform.
Owen Jenkinson, Marketing Director, Freeview said, “There’s never been a better time to be a Freeview viewer. With more content available than ever and lots of new partnerships to look forward to in 2020, no wonder Freeview Play continues to grow.”
Separately, the mobile app has accrued 1 million users to date.
A new Accessible TV Guide will launch shortly on all connected Freeview Play devices at LCN 555 that the platform says will strengthen its commitment to offer easy access to the best TV.
