Subscription free satellite provider Freesat is celebrating its first birthday and has announced that it is on track to hit 400,000 customers after its first year of operation. Since the company started, it has shown about 3,000 hours of BBC HD and ITV HD programming.
According to Freesat 9 out of 10 customers are satisfied and would recommend the service to a friend. Over 140 channels are available to customers, but that number is under the 200 promised stations when the service launched.
Skt+HD has now hit the one million customer mark by comparison. Freesat expects to boost its sales with the launch of the new BBC iPlayer coming in the fall.
