Swedish digital-terrestrial TV service provider Boxer has launched its offering of HDTV channels on the platform.
Boxer is offering Swedish public channels SVT1 and SVT2 along with pay TV services MTVNHD, National Geographic HD and Canal Plus HD. Currently, about half of all TV viewers in Sweden can receive the channels, with more transmitters to be added next year. DVB-T2 set-tops have only been available since September.
The move comes as Teracom posted stronger quarterly operating profits of SEK114 million (12.3 million). TeracomÂs performance was boosted by strong sales of the Plus TV pay TV service in Finland. Revenue for the first nine months was SEK2.812 billion, up 15%, but nine-months operating profit was down 56% top SEK186 million due to costs of developing pay TV services in Denmark and Finland. Overall pay TV subscriber numbers dropped by 2,000 during the third quarter, less than the previous quarterÂs fall of 8,000.
The group is currently preparing the launch of video-on-demand services to complement its digital-terrestrial offering.
