However, it is the summer season which quite often see’s things tail off a little, but we hope to have more news for you very soon to kick start the platform back into life ready for the silly season in the build up to Christmas.
So what can we expect over the coming months? Well we have it on reasonably solid grounds that Channel 4 are planning to launch a HD channel soon, which could be E4 HD, Film4 HD or possibly more likely More4 HD as that will be a new channel and therefore not tied into any existing (Sky) contracts. We also believe talks are ongoing with Channel 5 to bring 5* and 5 USA to the channel, with Channel 5 HD possibly to follow. In addition, following the huge success of the Manhattan Plaza DS-100 Freesat SD receiver, and the announcement that they will be launching a HD and HDR version, we have it on very good authority that the HD receiver will be available from September and the HDR (Freesat+) from October.
We also believe that Freesat is on its way to 2 million sales and should reach this (with a little news push) within the next month or two, which will be a fantastic milestone to reach in little over 3 years.
Sorry we cannot bring you more news yet, but hopefully things will pick up again shortly.
