Freeview in over a quarter of NZ homes

Freeview New Zealand is now available in 255,048 homes across the country, according to the latest figures released by the platform operator.

The latest sales figures for the three months ending June 2009 indicate that there are now

167,328 Freeview satellite homes (an increase of 11,846 from the last quarter) and 87,720 Freeview HD homes (an increase of 17,061 from the last quarter).

"One of the key drivers for our growth in the last quarter has been the sharp deals available in retail, which is partly due to new brands coming into the market with Freeview approved products. These include well known consumer favourites such as Sanyo and LG television. These brands complement the existing large number of Freeview approved brands and models already proving popular," says Sam Irvine, General Manager, Freeview NZ.
