We looked to leverage our video subscriber base to grow our broadband business whilst driving cross-selling and strategic alliance partnerships in key cities. Our deeper engagement with our franchisees and a focus on providing innovative packaging has continued to keep us on the growth course, especially in key semi-urban markets where we have a significant presence.”

NXT Digital today connects 5.52 million video subscriber homes in 1500+ cities and towns across India through its digital cable television (CATV) and Headend-In-The-Sky (HITS) platforms, served by over 9,000 LCOs.

The company said that it will continue to focus on consolidating and growing its serviced subscriber base – across video and broadband, whether directly or through its infrastructure sharing business model, which continues to see significant traction.

The company is focused on leveraging its investments in technology to support other multi-system operators who are not just looking to pare rising connectivity costs but also improve the quality of service to their subscribers.
