Verizon has 1 million IPTV Subscribers

Verizon ended 2007 with 943 thousand IPTV subscribers, but that total has exceeded one million since then. Its FiOS TV IPTV subscriber base increased by 343 percent in 2007. At the end of 2007 it was marketing its FiOS TV IPTV service to 5.9 million homes, up 1.2 million in 4Q07. More than half of this quarterly increase came in December.

Verizon now has 1.5 million FiOS FTTH subscribers, up 245 thousand in 4Q07. This compares to an increase of 226 thousand FiOS TV IPTV subscribers over the same period. Its FiOS Internet penetration is 21 percent of homes passed and its FiOS TV IPTV penetration is 16 percent.

Verizon clearly had a good year for its IPTV service. It would not surprise me to see it add another million IPTV subscribers in 2008.
