Orange sees French quad-play growth

Orange TV SpainOrange saw its quad-play base in France rise to over a third of its broadband subscriber base last year, while adding over half a million TV subs across all markets. 

Orange had 6.514 million IPTV and satellite TV customers at the end of 2013, up from 5.908 million a year earlier.

The company’s French TV base – including IPTV and satellite – reached 5.619 million customers, up from 5.067 million a year earlier.

In France, the company’s quad-play base reached 34% of its overall fixed broadband base of 10.108 million at the end of the year, up from 24% a year earlier. The broadband base included 319,000 fibre optic subscribers, compared with 176,000 a year earlier.

Fixed line revenues in France fell by 3.6% however, to €10.613 billion, due primarily to a decline in fixed voice revenues but also in part to the effect of quad-play bundling.

TV growth flatlined in Poland, where the year-end count of 707,000 for both satellite and IPTV was only 1,000 higher than the 2012 figure.

Spanish IPTV customers numbered 76,000 at the end of the year, up from 71,000 a year earlier, although the count fell as low as 62,000 at the end of the third quarter of 2013.
