The freeSAT DTH platform is expected to reach a significant milestone in the next few days when it signs up its 100,000th subscriber in the Czech Republic. UPC DTH, its Luxembourg-based owner, also operates a platform of the same name in Slovakia, along with UPC Direct in Hungary and Focus Sat in Romania.
As of the end of Q3, they had a combined total of 675,700 subscribers, with the highest take-up being claimed by UPC Direct (232,000) and Focus Sat (296,100).
