Dutch pay-TV market contracts again in Q1, over 1% drop in subscribers expected in 2020

Tuesday 16 June 2020 | 10:00 CET | News
The quarterly drop was similar to Q1 2019, but more than double the number of subscribers lost in the previous three quarters, according to the Telecompaper Dutch Television Q1 2020 report. Notably, IPTV services over DSL showed a first drop in subscribers, alongside further losses for cable, satellite and DTT. This may be due to KPN's phasing out of its low-cost brand Telfort as well as consumer migration to TV over fibre networks.
