France Telecom at 1.4M IPTV Subscribers

France Telecom ended 1Q08 with 1.407 million IPTV subscribers across all of its European operations, an increase of 164 thousand in the quarter. These numbers break down as follows:
  • 1.282 million IPTV subscribers in France with an increase of 133 thousand in 1Q08.
  • 49 thousand IPTV subscribers in Poland with an increase of 9 thousand in 1Q08.
  • 75 thousand IPTV subscribers in the rest of Europe with an increase of 21 thousand in 1Q08.
France Telecom also stated that it had 10,096 FTTH subscribers at the end of 1Q08 and that its service passed 187,322 homes.

France Telecom continues to make good progress with its IPTV service and is at or near the top of the list of IPTV service providers globally. I believe that France Telecom offers IPTV service in Spain, the Netherlands, and in Slovakia as well as in France and Poland. It plans to introduce IPTV service in the UK in 2008.
