“This achievement is a testament to all our many partners whom I’d like to thank for their outstanding support.
“With new content, manufacturer and product enhancement announcements on the horizon, Freeview Play is on track to becoming the new normal way viewers access TV.”
Freeview Play’s plans for 2017 include optional support for Ultra HD (4K) and HDR content for programmes delivered via broadband.
