Over 70% of pay-TV homes in Hungary now receive digital services.

Data just published by the regulator NMHH for the month of April put the figure at 69.9%, but that has now almost certainly been surpassed.

As of the end of April, the total number of cable and IPTV subscriptions, based on data supplied by eight major market players, stood at 2,131,677, of which 1,182,862 were digital.

Meanwhile, the number of DTH subscriptions stood at 901,600, while the pay-DTT service MinDig TV Extra had 111,444 subscribers.

In total, there were 2,196,906 digital TV subscriptions in the country.

UPC, Telekom and Digi were the main providers of pay-TV services regardless of technology, with respective market shares of 26.9%, 25.1% and 24.3%.

Separately, Antenna Hungária has announced that it will extend the coverage of MinDig TV Extra on June 18.
