A few weeks ago Turkcell announced the results for the year 2015. You can have a look to the presentation here.
It is possible to get key figures about Turkcell’s popular TV service Turkcell TV at pages 11 and 12 of the presentation.
Briefly, the service has reached to a total of 588K subs within almost 1,5 years.
Out of this 600K base, the number of IPTV homes are 224K. This has been achieved in 1,5 years which indicates around 40K net addition per quarter. If you look to the trend and check how quickly the number of subs is increasing it’s really impressive.
Having a look to the customer gain in TV market in the past year, Digiturk, D-Smart and Teledunya are all steady with not much changing number of customers. On the other hand, installed base of Tivibu and Turkcell TV+ are on the rise.
Actually, the rise on Tivibu side is due to the new satellite platform. IPTV domain of Tivibu is kind of stucked lately.
Turkcell Superonline has 900K fiber internet customers. Currrently, the ratio of households receiving triple-services is around 25 percent. It’s quite obvious that Turkcell’s main focus will be to increase this ratio over the coming years and eventually to provide tripleplays services to the complete base. Apperantly future is bright for Turkcell. Let’s keep monitoring the progress and how sustainable is this ramp-up.
