Swisscom TV reaches 791,000 subs

Swisscom has said that the number of IPTV connections increased year-on-year by 183,000 or 30.1% to 791,000 (+63,000 in the fourth quarter).

Around 200,000 Swisscom TV customers are now testing the cloud-based replay function, which allows programmes from around 70 channels to be watched up to 30 hours after they have been broadcast.

Around 80% of active replay customers already use catch-up TV.

In Italy, Swisscom-owned Fastweb said the bundled TV and broadband offering in partnership with Sky Italia attracted 151,000 customers to date.
