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:

  •     By 31 March 2005, the total number of digital television households grew by 643,517 to 15,417,398.
  •  
  •     BSkyB added 87,000 subscribers bringing its total number of UK subscribers to 7,349,000 at the end of Q1 2005. [Source: BSkyB results, Q1 2005]

  • Three per cent of households continued to subscribe to analogue cable during the first quarter of 2005, bringing the total proportion of households receiving some form of multi-channel television to just over 64.9 per cent.
  •  
  • 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. Latest estimates suggest that 25 per cent of Freeview set-top boxes are in households that already have digital (either Freeview, Sky or cable) on their main set. Sky and cable subscriber figures already account for multi-set users.
