freesatFreesat has announced that its sales have passed 750,000 units since the service launched last year, and could breach the one million mark during early 2010.
At a briefing yesterday, Freesat managing director Emma Scott confirmed that the company sold over 200,000 units in the three months up to September 30.

The firm’s results surpassed Sky’s reported 94,000 new subscribers gained during the same period, making Freesat the fastest growing TV platform in the UK.
Scott said that 80% of Freesat sales are for high definition equipment, and that half of its total install base owns receivers manufactured by Humax.

Buoyed by the growth and expected interest over the key Christmas period, Scott further issued the bullish prediction of passing one million unit sales by the close of the first quarter of 2010.
Freesat further announced details of a phased rollout of BBC iPlayer on the platform, followed by the launch of ITV Player during the first half of next year.
