Orange Poland adds DTH subs but revenues down

France Telecom-owned telco Polish TP ended March with a total of 577,000 Orange TV customers, a 38% year-on-year increase.

The operator’s TV subscriber base was made up of 113,000 IPTV subs, 2,000 fewer than at the end of December, and 464,000 DTH subs, an increase of 33,000. The number of premium pay TV subs increased to 153,000.

While the operator saw increases in its overall TV subscriber base, fourth quarter ARPU from TV and broadband services was at its lowest level for 12 months at PLN54.60 (€14) compared with PLN57.70 a year earlier. This resulted in a decrease in broadband and TV revenue to PLN375 million compared with PLN392 million a year earlier.
