The leading Czech and Slovak DTH platform Skylink currently has 2.1 million customers, a total little changed on this time last year.
However, speaking to Digizone, Jaromir Glisnik, a member of the board at M7, added that within that period the number receiving Skylink Kombi package increased by 30%.
At the same time, the total receiving HD and paid services currently stands at over 100,000 and 300,000 respectively.
Skylink has been criticised for decreasing the total number of HD channels it offers. This, said Glisnik, has been down to the collapse of the Bulgarian DTH platform Satellite BG, with which it shared capacity.
The overall impact on Skylink’s customer base has nevertheless been minimal.
