German internet TV platform waipu.tv had around 366,000 subscribers on September 30, 2019, exceeding the expected number of over 350,000 paying customers for 2019 as a whole.
Compared to the previous year, this represents an increase of 163,400 customers (September 30, 2018: 202,400 customers), as parent company Freenet announced in its latest quarterly figures report.
As expected, DVB-T2 and DTH satellite platform Freenet TV maintained its customer base of 1.037 million revenue-generating users (RGU) over the past three months. Year-on-year, Freenet TV increased its customer base by 135,100 customers (September 30, 2018: 901,500 customers).
Meanwhile, following M7 Group’s decision to close its German DTH satellite platform Diveo on November 30, 2019, Freenet TV, unlike its competitor HD+, is not planning a special promotion to attract former Diveo customers.
“We are not planning a separate offer for Diveo customers, as we already have a very attractive proposition on the market with our standard price and monthly cancellation option,” a spokesman of operating company Media Broadcast, part of Freenet group, told Broadband TV News.
