The Lithuanian incumbent telco TEO LT is witnessing huge interest in its TV services ahead of the country’s switch to digital broadcasting, which will take place in less than a week.

According to the company, which is backed by TeliaSonera, the registered number of customers interested in purchasing the services in the last two weeks was 43% higher than over the same period in September.

TEO LT operates DTT and IPTV services under the brand name Gala and as of the third quarter they had a combined total of 162,000 subscribers.

With ASO, this figure is likely to rise significantly in the fourth quarter.
