Freesat, the UK’s subscription-free satellite TV platform, today announced it has sold its 3 millionth product.

To mark its 3m landmark, Freesat has announced plans to add Google’s YouTube to its range of content.

“We’re now delighted to add to our already fantastic customer offering with YouTube. They join Freesat at a time of rapid growth for our business and will offer our viewers an exclusive, first view of their latest version – previously unseen on free to air TV in the UK.”
Peter Sherman, Product Marketing Manager for YouTube added, “We’re happy to be working with Freesat so that Freesat users can now access YouTube from the platform. Our creator community is developing quality content that will delight and inspire viewers and we’re pleased to be able to bring it to people in new ways.”
