freesatFreesat’s next-generation specification, known as Freesat G2, will include DiSEqC, single cable routing and core support for iPlayer-style hybrid TV services.
It’s designed around faster, broadband-ready digital TV chipsets coming onto the market this year.
Emma Scott, managing director of Freesat, said: ‘Freesat has worked closely with both Sagemcom and Humax in the past and we are pleased to be partnering with them again on our exciting next stage of product development.

‘We have now hit the two million sales mark, beating our original projections and adding more homes each quarter than any other TV platform. An important part of our success to date has been the quality of our technology and the manufacturing partners we work with.’
Freesat also revealed that 47 per cent of its new viewers in 2011 are former Sky customers swapping pay-TV for free.
Prototypes of both manufacturers’ new products for Freesat and Freeview were expected at this weekend’s IBC broadcast technology show – more details soon.
