Sunrise signs up ‘several thousand’ IPTV subs

Swiss service provider Sunrise has said it had signed up “several thousand” subscribers to its IPTV service as of the end of June, without giving precise numbers.

“Although we believe that our TV offerings will play an important role in our business going forward, they do not yet play a significant role in the condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2012,” the company said in its results statement.

Sunrise launched its IPTV service in the first quarter. As of the end of June, the company had 372,000 fixed internet subscribers. Fixed internet revenues increased by 1.3% to CHF88.6 million (€73.8 million) for the first six months of the year.
