1.5 million Freeview boxes


The BBC informed about number of homes with Freeview - which gives access to digital terrestrial television - has almost doubled in the last nine months. More than 1.5 million Freeview boxes were being used at the start of July, a report from the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) said.

That is up from 763,000 on October 1, 2002 - when a number of channels were available but before the Freeview service started in earnest.

Freeview allows people to watch extra channels, such as BBC Four and S^y News, by making a one-off outlay of about £99 for the box, without a monthly fee. Many of the Freeview boxes are old ITV Digital boxes that viewers kept when the service went into liquidation.
