19,000 homes joined the TV platform in the first six months of 2015, according to Freesat.
Sales of Freesat's Freetime connected TV boxes grew 48% year-on-year. Freetime allows viewers to access both live and on-demand programming from the main programme guide, plus access to apps including BBC Sport and YouTube.
Last month, Freesat and Humax launched a new compact HDR-1100S Freetime box with 2TB recording memory. Just the next twelve months, new Freesat receivers with Freetime are expected to be launched in conjunction with Manhattan and Vestel.
Alistair Thom, Freesat’s managing director, commented:
"It has been another strong quarter for the team at Freesat, and our continued growth demonstrates the ongoing appeal of subscription-free connected TV. Expanding our partnership with manufacturers like Humax, Manhattan and Vestel enables us to offer our customers great telly and on demand services, for even better value."
