Ofcom published figures recently that say 60 million TVs in the UK are digital, which is about 2/3 of all TVs in the country. The report takes into account those connected to cable, satellite, or digital terrestrial signals. While the US is set to move to digital broadcasts in 1009, the UK won’t make the change until 2012.
The Ofcom report also says that over 7 million digital TVs were purchased this year. The report also gave an idea of what users are watching on their TVs. Sky has the most watchers with 8.3 million homes viewing.
Virgin Media has 3.5 million subscribers while Freeview stands at over 30 million. The rather new Freesat has 720,000 users so far.
