BT Group plc (BT.L) today announced its results for the third quarter and nine months to 31 December 2015.

BT Consumer

We had another good quarter of TV customer additions, growing the base by 97,000 to reach 1.4m customers. In the quarter we announced that BT customers would be the first to see the critically acclaimed new drama ‘Manhattan’ which premiered on BT’s AMC channel on 5 January.

BT today announced a new organisational structure that will take effect from April. This follows its acquisition of EE, the UK’s leading mobile network operator.

Under this structure, there will be six lines of business. Two will serve consumers, two will focus on businesses and the public sector – one in the UK and Ireland and one globally – and two will provide wholesale services to other industry players.

BT Consumer will continue to serve ten million households with a mix of superfast broadband, telephony, TV and mobile services.
