BT Q2: 1.8m TV subs

In reporting its Q2 results, BT has revealed that its TV customer base continues to grow, with TV net adds of 7,000 taking its base to 1.8 million.

Average viewing figures for BT Sport for the quarter increased 8 per cent compared to last year (excluding showcase), driven by strong performance in both Premier League (up 2 per cent) and UEFA Champions League (up 16 per cent), with six British teams having qualified for the group stage for the first time since the 2007/08 season.
