Freesat continues to see a positive increase in sales ahead of a planned advertising campaign showing on television from tomorrow.

Since the previous announcement of 200,000 sales up to the end of 2008, that figure has now increased in Q1 of 2009 to 300,000. In the current climate and often at a time when retail sales dip, this is very positive news for Freesat.

We shall try to find out officially the split of receivers purchased but on asking previously, were told that this information is not released as the manufacturers prefer such figures to remain private for competition reasons. We understand that itís around 190,000 HD, 110,000 SD.
