Proximus – formerly Belgacom – added 35,000 TV sales in the first quarter to take its TV subscriber base to 1.795 million.

The company said its share of the Belgian TV market now stood at 35.4%, compared with a 46.2% share of the fixed internet market.

Revenue from TV grew by 10.5%, helping offset a decline in voice revenue, with overall turnover falling by 3.1% to €1.433 billion for the quarter.

Both the Proximus and Scarlet brands increased their respective bases, contributing to an overall year-on-year increase in the TV base of 137,000, 8.3% up on the prior year.

Of the 35,000 units added in the quarter, 26,000 were unique customer sales and the remainder were sales of multi-set-top services.

Recurring TV ARPU showed a stable year-on-year growth of 1.3% to EUR 20.2 driven by the increased uptake of TV options.
