Swisscom sees strong TV growth

Swisscom had 728,000 TV customers in its core Swiss market at the end of September, up 30.9% on the comparable figure last year.

At the end of September, 739,000 customers were taking Swisscom’s combined offerings such as Vivo Casa and Vivo Tutto, which combine fixed line access with telephony, internet and TV or an additional mobile line, up 31.3% year-on-year. Swisscom’s fixed-line broadband total customers at the end of September numbered 1.71 million.

Italian subsidiary Fastweb’s bundled TV and broadband offering, launched in partnership with Sky Italia a year ago, had attracted 123,000 subscribers by the end of September.

Swisscom expects full-year revenue of CHF11.3 billion (€9.4 billion) and EBITDA of CHF4.35 billion, the latter down slighly on earlier projections thanks to non-recurring costs related to changes in headcount.
