Friday 22 February 2019 | 10:28 CET | News
Pay-TV revenues in Spain surprisingly fell 2.1 percent year on year to EUR 512 million in the third quarter of 2018, impacted by a series of low-cost promotions. The latest data released by communications regulator CNMC revealed that pay-TV subscribers rose over 7 percent year on year to 6.9 million, driven by a 649,000 surge in convergent packages, which account for 90.5 percent of the total. IPTV revenues increased by 5 percent to EUR 340.9 million but FTA revenues declined by 4 percent to EUR 340 million.
