DishTV has added 0.41 million new subscribers during the second quarter. The gross subscriber base stood at 5.92 million as on September 30, 2009, while the net subscriber base stood at 4.98 million.

A release quoted Chairman Subhash Chandra as saying: “DishTV has achieved robust growth in tough market conditions. Our focus on operational excellence and internal measures such as cost optimisation has supported the results. We also continued with our investment programmes to support our growth. The ongoing macroeconomic trends and a positive industry cycle are key factors for strengthening our optimistic outlook in the coming quarters.”

Commenting on the recent developments, Jawahar Goel, Managing Director, DishTV, said, “With our robust product offering, competent workforce and stringent processes, we are well prepared to capitalize on the growth opportunities.

Following this route, we are confident of emerging stronger as the economic environment improves and better poised to deliver enhanced value to all our stakeholders.”
