The Dutch TV revenues have grown during the third quarter driven by price increases from Ziggo and KPN in July 2016.
The revenues grew by 5.8 percent during the third quarter to EUR 485 million, according to Telecompaper’s Dutch Television Market 2016-Q3 report.
Ziggo’s TV revenues grew by more than 8 percent during the quarter to slightly more than EUR285 million and KPN saw its TV revenues grow by almost 4 percent. Despite the revenue growth, KPN’s marketshare dropped by 0.4% to less than 25%, while Ziggo’s market share grew to more than 59%.
The number of TV connections decreased by 0.2% during the third quarter to reach 7.8 million on September 30. Digital TV is used by 90.3% of all connections as the quarterly growth was driven by IPTV via fibre and DSL. This was enough to off-set the decrease of digital cable TV, Digitenne and satellite TV.
