The company’s cable subscription universe grew to 1.05 crore in the current quarter from 1 crore in the previous quarter. Digital subscription base grew to 0.485 crore in Q3-2015 from 0.46 crore in Q2-2015. Siti Cable added 3 lakh digital subscribers in Q3-2015 as compared to the 2.5 lakh digital subscribers in Q2-2015.

“Siti Cable Network is fully geared to provide the benefits of digitization to the Indian subscriber. The company continues to provide leadership in the areas of best practices, systems implementation and compliances. Although some minor challenges remain, the company is leading the industry on a new and evolved growth trajectory,” said Siti Cable chairman Dr. Subhash Chandra.

“Siti Cable maintained its growth momentum in the third quarter as well while improving EBITDA Margin from 20.5 percent to 22.4 percent q-o-q. Last mile operators have realized that digitization is a reality now. We see less resistance towards digitization from the LCOs in phase 3 and  4 towns. In fact they see digital cable STB as an opportunity towards offering more channels, better services to their consumers and realising better revenues from their existing customer base. It also helps them in retaining their customer, who would otherwise move to competing technology like DTH for want of better quality services”, said Siti Cable executive director and CEO said V D Wadhwa.
