Ofcom has published figures showing that fourth-quarter Freeview sales reached four million, 69 per cent higher than the same period last year.
Cumulative sales since the launch of Freeview in October 2002 now stand at 27 million, 10.2 million of which were sold in 2007 alone.
The total number of main TV sets receiving Freeview has now reached 9.6 million, and the service is in 15.3 million homes, according to Ofcom.
Of the 22 million Freeview-enabled sets, secondary sets now account for 56 per cent (12.4 million) of sales.
Ilse Howling, general manager at Freeview, said: "The latest Ofcom figures once again show an excellent quarter for Freeview."
