All Freeview products to be HD from end-2016

Friday 25 September 2015 | 10:26 CET | News
UK DTT platform Freeview has announced that all future Freeview products will be HD. From end-2016, the Freeview Trade Mark Licence will only be granted for HD products, with the brand no longer appearing on new SD products. The move is expected to give a major boost to sales of HD products, which accounted for over 70 percent of new Freeview TV sales in the UK in 2014. Sales of equipment with Freeview in-built have reached more than 100 million since the service launched in 2002.
