Have to be careful with such stats. My TV has Freesat HD and Freeview HD tuners built in. So has it's successor and so do many others from other brands.

Such TVs ccould all be counted as Freesat sales despite the fact that many customers won't use it.

It's a bit like DAB/FM radios. Many will buy one and only use FM. They only buy DAB/FM because it's difficult not to.

I would imagine its the same with 3D Tvs as well, lots being sold because the buyer has no option with the more "upmarket" models.

Suppose you could also say the same about HD TVs, lots about but perhaps not all used to their full potential

No wonder, Sky are just greedy. I tried to get just Sky Sports 1 to be told it's all one pack at £20 a month! I'm off to Freesat once the HD contract I never knew existed runs out on 8 December.......

Rip off Britain....... :hand:
