Freeview Play device sales top five million

Freeview and Digital UK have announced that the total number of Freeview Play devices sold in the UK since the platform’s 2015 launch has exceeded five million.

Over three million of these devices are being utilised by “active users” (defined as a device which has accessed a piece of on-demand content through a Freeview Play touchpoint in the past 6 months), a figure predicted to surpass four million in the third quarter of 2019, making Freeview Play the UK’s fastest growing TV platform.

In January 2019 the platform will launch a Mobile App offering catch-up and live TV on the go, and further manufacturer and content announcements are also due early next year.

Jonathan Thompson, CEO at Digital UK, said: “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.”
