Dutch telco KPN telecom announced it had about 970,000 TV subscribers at the end of 2009, about 90,000 of which were customers of the company's IPTV service, launched in 2006 (the rest coming via a long-standing digital terrestrial offering). That's not much to show for three-plus years of selling IPTV, but the sign-ups actually doubled from 2008 to 2009, so maybe things are looking up. Meanwhile, the company said it would stick with IPTV despite slow acceptance because it sees the service as tied to the future performance of its overall broadband network, triple play service packages and ongoing fiber deployment plans, according to a story at Light Reading Europe.
