Deutsche Telekom adds 100k domestic TV subs in Q2

Germany’s Deutsche Telekom had reached 1.83mn subscribers for its pay-TV service ‘Entertain’ (delivered via IPTV and DTH) by the end of June, up 40.7% from one year earlier.

The telco added 100,000 German TV customers in the second quarter of this year alone, helping to drive a 30% increase in domestic television revenues in the first half of this year on an annual basis.

Europe-wide, Deutsche Telekom reports that its IPTV business again proved itself as a consistent growth driver, with the total number of IPTV customers increasing by around 8% over the first six months of this year.

Total revenues across all operations and markets for the first half of this year fell 0.7% on an annual basis to reach €14.379bn, while net profits rose an impressive 76% to reach €614mn.

Deutsche Telekom confirmed last June that it will launch TV Everywhere services in Germany by this autumn under the name ‘Entertain2Go’, offering live TV, video-on-demand and more to laptops, tablets and smart phones.
