Digital+ Continues To Struggle In Spain
[Satellite Today – 2-6-08] Spanish direct-to-home platform Digital+ added only 21,000 net subscribers in the fourth quarter to close 2007 with 2.1 million subscribers, the company announced Feb. 5.
Digital+ owner Sogecable blamed the low number of additions on issues regarding uncertainty surrounding Spanish football rights. The operator’s churn rate was nearly12 percent..
The operator hopes to rebound with the initiation of its high-definition services this year and also has launched Trio+, a triple-play offer developed through a deal with Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica.
