Over half a million subscribers in Sweden now take TeliaSonera’s TV offer, according to new data from the telco.
TeliaSonera added an additional 111,000 TV subscribers in the second quarter taking subscriber levels over the one million mark for the first time. 488,000 TV subscribers are in Sweden.
A solid performance by TeliaSonera in 2010 was reflected in its Broadband Services business area, where TV subscriptions at year’s end stood at 935,000 or 17% more than 12 months earlier.
TeliaSonera is continuing to add to its IPTV customer base in all of its major markets. In its nine-month financials published today the Swedish-Finnish telco said that in Finland the company had reached the 200,000 milestone during the third quarter of the year to reach 207,000.
Increased revenues from IPTV and VoIP are still not sufficient to compensate for the losses in traditional fixed-voice services, says TeliaSonera.
TeliaSonera International Carrier has been selected by Irish broadcaster TV4 to power its TG4 online streaming and catch-up services.
TeliaSonera is upgrading its fixed broadband access network to offer businesses and consumers media-rich services such as HDTV, live video streaming and online gaming, with Ericsson providing the broadband access network of one million lines based on VDSL2 technology.
If you were to wonder where all the new pay-TV subscriptions in Sweden had gone, the answer is probably with the IPTV service provided by the incumbent telco TeliaSonera.
TeliaSonera-backed Lattelecom says it is now the leading provider of digital TV services in Latvia, with its IPTV operation Interactive TV claiming over 40,000 subscribers.
Spotify has announced a deal with the Swedish telco TeliaSonera that puts the music sharing website into the TV environment for the first time.
