Nordic IPTV customer growth makes up for other pay-TV losses

Thursday 15 September 2016 | 12:05 CET | News
In the second quarter of 2016, the top telecom operators in the Nordic region had nearly 210,000 net additions to their IPTV subscriptions, according to Swedish consultancy Mediavision. The upturn compensates for the subscription loss on every other platform on the maturing Nordic pay-TV market, it said. Total pay-TV subscriptions from leading providers in the region during the quarter grew by a modest 0.4 percent or 40,000 contracts year on year to 11 million, it said.
