Swisscom TV came close to doubling its IPTV subscribers in the 12 months, growing its installed base by 92.1% to 317,000.
85,000 subscribers were added in the first six months of the year alone as the Swiss telco grew both TV and mobile data communication. 111,000 customers have already signed up to the new triple play ‘Case Trio’ bundle combining fixed-line telephony, internet and TV.
Overall Swisscom reported a 7.5% drop in second quarter profits, net income falling to SFr496 million (€360m), in part due to the part played by the weakening Euro on Italian subsidiary Fastweb. Sales at the broadband unit fell by 8.3% to SFr659 million.
