TeliaSonera has released its interim report for the January-March 2013 period.

The number of TV subscriptions approached 600,000 in Sweden and the earlier successful launch of Telia Play+, with the possibility to get access to our TV offerings on smartphones and tablets, continued. Cold weather affected the roll-out of fibre in the period.

In the quarter, the company completed the divestment of its Norwegian business NextGenTel (to Telio), which was deconsolidated as of February 1.

The total number of TV subscriptions rose by 131,000 from the first quarter of 2012 and by 17,000 during the quarter to 1.3 million. Adjusted for NextGenTel, the number of subscriptions increased by 29,000 during the quarter.
