Unitymedia KabelBW sees Horizon growth

Liberty Global-owned German operator Unitymedia KabelBW had signed up 75,000 Horizon advanced set-top box customers by the beginning of February, the company has said. 

The growth represents an increase of 50,000 Horizon subscriptions since October 31.

The advanced set-top box was launched in Baden-Württemberg at the end of January, having previously only been available across the operator’s North-Rhine Westphalia and Hesse networks.
