With prices starting at under £100, and a choice of over 60 models, Freeview+ is a great way to beat the recession. And now with CNN (channel 84, 9pm-1am) on air and Discovery Quest in the coming months, a digital video recorder is a wise investment, Freeview claims.

"More than 17.2 million homes are enjoying the benefits of viewing 13 of the 15 most-watched channels without having to pay for them and Freeview+ saves viewers more than £200 in the first year alone compared to the subscription alternatives." Freeview said today.

Ilse Howling, Freeview MD says "The popularity of Freeview+ isn't surprising given that it offers outstanding value - giving the same experience as '+' recorders from other providers, the only difference is it's free from subscription."

"During a downturn, TV viewing naturally increases as people choose to stay in and watch TV as a form of free entertainment. We know that Freeview is an extremely compelling proposition of high quality, subscription free, digital TV, but Freeview+ is adding a new dimension to people's viewing experience, allowing them to take control of what they watch and when they watch it. More than half of Freeview+ users tell us they can't live without it."

"New additions to the Freeview channel portfolio, coupled with the roll out of Freeview HD across the UK from the end of 2009 is an exciting prospect for Freeview viewers and gives them even more value in the tough climate."
