humax hdr-1100s

Freesat has seen its sales climb by 48 per cent year-on-year, the firm has announced.

It has added over 19,000 new customers since the start of the year. Sales of its connected TV service Freetime were up by a whopping 200 per cent year-on-year.

Freesat now has over 4 million customers in the UK.

The service offers over 200 TV and radio channels with no monthly fee.

Its autumn schedule will include Channel 4 drama 'Homeland' and the final series of 'Downton Abbey'.

Last month, it partnered with Humax to launch the HDR-1100S set-top box. This compact model offers a 2TB hard drive. The firm says that it will collaborate with Manhattan and Vestel on other Freetime products in the next 12 months.

"It has been another strong quarter for the team at Freesat, and our continued growth demonstrates the ongoing appeal of subscription-free connected TV," said Alistair Thom, Freesat's managing director. "Expanding our partnership with manufacturers like Humax, Manhattan and Vestel enables us to offer our customers great telly and on-demand services, for even better value."
