How do you receive your TV programmes ? 2012 Data

Looking at the Venn diagram of TV Transmission platforms below........

You can see that there are 19.2 million homes with Freeview, 6.2m of which also have Sky and 2.5m of which have cable.
The number of homes with just pay services is small - only 230,000 homes have just cable, and 2.7 million homes have just Sky.
Having just Freeview, however is 45 times more than just cable, and four times more popular than having just Sky alone.
And finally - there are only half a million more Sky-only homes than Freesat ones.
No mention of OnDemand, other internet based sources, and mobile 3G & 4G, perhaps included in 2013 Data

Looking at that diagram i'm guessing this is the work of ofcom and their quarterly reports?

In no particular order, various Freeview  HD, Freesat HD, Freesat from Sky and Linux PVRs ( for my motorised and multi-LNB setups for European sat)
But predominantly, most of our TV is streamed these days via Rokus, WDTVs, PC and tablets.

FreeSat + FreeSatHD (on the PC) -> Freeview Lite (TVs) -> iPlayer (PC) -> 4OD.(PC)
Practically every house around here has a dish because we're part of the 8.5% who'll never get full Freeview transmission.

Which is why I also have SKY+HD.
At least I can get the basic Channels 1-4 in HD on Freeview HD.
