The Danish telco TDC saw its revenues grow by 0.9% year-on-year in the first quarter to DKK6,609 million (886.2 million), helped in good part in what were difficult market conditions by its TV and TDC Nordic interests.

At the same time, its EBITDA rose by 1.2% to DKK2,712 million and profit by 166.7% to DKK704 million.

The company ended the first quarter with a total of 1,477,000 TV subscribers, or 13,000 more than three months and 63,000 more than a year earlier.

YouSee Clear had 1,180,000 subscribers in Q1, with YouSee Plus claiming 167,000 and TDC TV 130,000.

Significantly, TV RGUs grew by 4.5% due to the continued success of HomeTrio (take-up of duo and triple play bundles was up by 26.8% and 28.1% respectively) and YouSee, in part due to growing take-up of on demand services.
