Britons have acquired 3.1m Freeview HD devices - TVs, receivers and DVRs - Freeview reported last week.
In total, 18m homes have a Freeview-capable device of some kind, be it HD or standard definition.
Just under 58 per cent of homes - 10.2m - pick up Freeview on a TV rather than a set-top box. There are 1.8m Freeview HD TVs out there.
Freeview HD currently offers four HD channels – BBC One HD, BBC HD, ITV 1 HD and Channel 4 HD - and a fifth channel is due to launch in April 2012. ®
