MUMBAI: Britains regulator Ofcom has come out with a 'digital television update' for the first quarter of 2005. The report analyses data provided by the main digital television platform providers.

The report reveals that by 31 March 2005 digital television penetration was estimated to have reached 61.9 per cent of UK households; an increase of 2.5 per cent points from 59.4 per cent from the previous quarter.

Key trends that the report highlighted include:

  •

  • In calculating Digital Terrestrial Television households an adjustment has been made to account for the number of households which have digital TV on more than one set.

Sky and cable subscriber figures already account for multi-set users.
