BUDAPEST — Magyar Telekom, part of Deutsche Telekom (Frankfurt: DTE)(NYSE:DT), today reported its consolidated financial results for the first nine months of 2009, in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Consumer Services Business Unit (CBU)

TV related revenues grew further thanks to the solid demand for our TV products. The total number of TV customers was close to 584,000 by the end of September with growth mostly driven by our T-Home Sat TV satellite TV service, while demand for IPTV also strengthened.

T-Home’s market share of the pay-TV market reached 23% in September.

  • Macedonia (Makedonski Telekom) – fixed line: The voice revenue decline was partly offset by growing internet and IPTV revenues driven by the expanding customer base.
  • Montenegro (Crnogorski Telekom) – fixed line: Both internet and TV revenues grew considerably thanks to the strong increases in the number of ADSL and IPTV customers.
