Dutch telco KPN reported that its digital-terrestrial TV service Digitenne had a total of 886,000 TV subscribers at the end of the second quarter, up from 835,000 at the end of the first quarter, with growth driven by its low-cost digital-terrestrial service Digitenne.
At the end of June, KPN said Digitenne had approximately 830,000 customers, while KPNs hybrid IPTV service had about 60,000 subscribers. ARPU for TV remained flat at Â7.
The telcoÂs own-brand broadband service had 1.155 million subscribers at the end of June, up from 1.145 million in March. KPN said that it had now stabilised the rate of loss of fixed-line subscribers to cable competitors to less than 30,000 per quarter.
KPN offers IPTV as part of a range of triple-play packages priced between Â45 and Â75, while similar packages bundled as part of a FTTH offering cost between Â65 and Â110. The company, which already offers HDTV in fibre areas, said it would launch HD services over its copper network next year.
KPN as a whole reported revenues of Â3.411bn for the quarter, down 6.9% year-on-year. Net profit was Â370m, up 4.8%.Â
