Ofcom has revealed the latest snapshot of Britain's digital TV watching statistics.

The number of UK homes tuning into digital TV via free-to-view satellite was at around 900,000.

These include customers of Sky's non-subscription services as well as viewers who have bought the BBC/ITV Freesat service.

The number of homes with Freeview on their main set reached 16.7 million by the end of June, helped in part, Ofcom says, by a "surge" in sales of TVs with built-in Freeview receivers.

More than 1.4 million of such televisions were sold between April and June, a 54% increase on the year.

This means 88% of households now have digital TV on their main set, while over half of the 35 million secondary sets in the UK have also been converted to digital.
