Swiss Nibble at IPTV

3:00 PM -- Swisscom AG (NYSE: SCM) is nothing if not consistent.

Having added 10,000 new IPTV customers in the third quarter of 2007, the Swiss incumbent added the exact same number during the final three months of last year, the carrier revealed today as it posted its latest financials. (See Yet More Euro IPTV Growth and Swisscom Reports 2007.)

That gave it a total of 70,000 subscribers for its Bluewin TV service at the end of 2007, and there's plenty of room for growth as the operator has 1.6 million DSL customers.

That total, though, is not nearly enough for Swisscom to get even close to a place on our Top Ten: IPTV Carriers list, which is to be updated in the coming days.
