Turkish pay TV platform D-Smart has topped the 900,000 subscriber mark by end-2008, according to parent company Dogan.
The Turkish media group issued figures for the D-Smart service in a presentation to investors that revealed the pay TV service generated revenues of TRY95m (45m) in the companyÂs 2008 financial year, compared with TRY77m a year earlier.
Subscriber numbers were boosted by discounts for yearly subscriptions and the addition of new channel packages and, in the third quarter of 2008, a high-definition TV service. Â
D-Smart might be faring well at home, but, last year, Dogan had to scale back plans to launch the service in neighbouring countries because of the economic downturn.
