Subscriber revenues at Prisa’s Digital+ declined by 10.7% in the first half of 2009 to €529.83 million.
In Spain’s increasingly competitive market subs fell back from 2,001,000 at the end of March to 1,930,793 as of June 30, 2009.

Average subscriber revenues came in at €41.5, the fall from €44.3 being partially attributable to a decline in pay-per-view revenues.
The Digital+ division recorded an EBITDA of €160.06 million on a 22.0% margin.
