Canada’s Telus sees TV additions slow down

Canadian telco Telus continues to add TV subscribers at a healthy rate, with 34k added in the first quarter of this year, but concedes that this is 10k fewer than its gains for the same period of last year.

The telco, which operates separate IPTV and DTH services, reached a total of 712,000 TV customers by the end of March, with its fibre-based IPTV service ‘Optik TV’ helping to keep broadband additions ticking over.

Telus is currently adding approximately one broadband subscriber for every two TV additions, and now counts 1.3mn subscribers for its high-speed broadband services, up 6% from one year earlier.
