MONTRÉAL — BCE Inc. (TSX: BCE) (NYSE: BCE) today reported results for the first quarter (Q1) of 2024.

Bell Communication and Technology Services (Bell CTS)

  • Bell added 14,174 net new retail IPTV subscribers, up 30.0% from 10,899 in Q1 2023, driven by higher customer activations from greater Internet pull-through and the success of our multi-brand segmentation approach, including standalone Fibe TV subscriptions and Fibe TV streaming service, which attained its highest Q1 activations since launch. At the end of Q1 2024, Bell served 2,084,516 retail IPTV subscribers, a 4.3% increase over last year.
  • Retail satellite TV subscribers are no longer being reported as of Q1 2024 as these customers no longer represent a significant proportion of overall revenues. Accordingly, satellite TV subscribers have been removed from our retail TV subscriber base, and we now report exclusively retail IPTV subscribers.
