Chunghwa Adds 24k IPTV Subscribers (corrected)

Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan added 24 thousand IPTV subscribers in 3Q07 giving it a total of 358 thousand subscribers. This is an increase of 109 thousand since the beginning of 2007 and 153 thousand in the previous 12 months.

It stated that it has 4,500 hours per month of video on content. (correction) Its Major League Baseball gaming service had 1.1 million hits across its IPTV, 3G mobile, and Internet platforms.

Chunghwa plans to provide HD coverage of the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Chunghwa is still adding subscribers at the rate of 150 thousand per year. It will hit that level in 2007 if it adds the same number of subscriber in 4Q07 that it added in 4Q06. It should add significantly more subscribers in 2008 based on its impending island wide service roll out.
