Freeview NZ has received its biggest sales month since it launched in 2007.
Sales figures show 34,928 Freeview receivers were sold across the country during December 2010. The majority of these were TVs with Freeview HD built-in.
Sales for the last quarter of 2010 show 78,700 Freeview receivers were sold, up from 58,417 in the third quarter of 2010. Of these, 11,706 were Freeview satellite receivers and 66,994 were Freeview HD receivers.
"We're encouraged by the strong progress made even though we are still over 18 months out from the start of the digital switch-over", says Sam Irvine, General Manager, Freeview NZ.
Freeview NZ has grown the number of channels available on its platform to a total of nineteen with the recent launch of TAB Trackside on Freeview|HD. This means thirteen or fourteen TV channels (depending on location) plus three radio channels are available on Freeview|HD, and Freeview Satellite offers fifteen TV channels with an additional four radio channels.
