Sony has indicated that they expect to release a new range of televisions with integrated Freesat by the end of the year. This follows the hugely successful rival range from Panasonic, which have been on the market for many months now and have recently announced the launch of a new range themselves.
This news is reported to have been given by a Sony representative to What Satellite & Digital TV magazine at a function on Monday evening. Wotsat have said;
At a UK press event last night, a Sony representative told What Satellite that Freesat HD-ready TVs would be available by Christmas but did not disclose features or screen sizes.
This is further good news of the intent of major manufacturers to get involved with the Freesat platform. As and when we have further news we shall let you know.
