Wednesday 30 June 2021 | 17:14 CET | News
The effect of the lockdown on the combined TV/video market in the Netherlands came to an end in the first quarter of this year. The pandemic is a year old and its boost to growth in TV and video services has now been lost with the year-on-year comparison. The market grew at a more or less normal 4.3 percent in Q1, to EUR 625 million in revenues, according to Telecompaper's new Dutch TV-Video Market report for 2021 Q1.
