Chief executive John Porter said the interim results highlight the company's continuing subscriber growth. Total television subscribers had risen by 26, tosince the end ofon improved sales and a strong take-up of Austar's MyStar personal digital recorder offering.
Average monthly customer churn for the second quarter of calendar fell to 1. Total average revenue per user ARPU for the second quarter grew 2.
Mr Porter said Austar was keeping an eye on financial markets before deciding on further capital management initiatives, after an on-market share buyback in May and June when it purchased and cancelled 46 million shares.
Austar did not declare an interim dividend. And for rural denizens not so exposed to the mining or soft commodities booms, it's a simple choice between a night in front of the telly and discretionary items such as, er, food. Because of either rural prosperity or the whiff of tough times, Austar's subscriber numbers continue to head in the right direction, as does the all-important ARPU average revenue per unit, up 2.
Churn -- another key measure -- is also down, but still at less than desired levels. For those who have not yet had their fill of foul-mouthed British chefs, the premier of Hells Kitchen series four screens in October. Porter is also heartened by the strength of TV sales, especially the high-definition models.
But there's a growing dichotomy between Austar's healthy operating result and its reported net loss: Austar is doing well with subscription growth, especially the uptake of its My Star personal digital recorder product. And what's a bit of debt between friends when you're a monopoly provider?
It had been thought that Seven could charge subscribers for additional features as they became available on the TiVo box -- which was launched yesterday in Harvey Norman stores -- including internet downloads.
But Joshua Danovitz, TiVo's international general manager, said: Seven is believed to be aiming for more than 50, sales of TiVo DVRs by the end of the financial year -- with 25, sales believed to be the break-even number for the period. Mr Danovitz and Seven executives were cagey about how yesterday's launch had gone, leaving Gerry Harvey, the head of Harvey Norman -- which is selling the product exclusively for the next six weeks -- to do the spruiking.
But Mr Danovitz has dismissed the concerns. I think what we are doing -- and Seven are doing -- is offering more control and flexibility over what, when and possibly where they watch.
With web TV -- like YouTube -- there's a lot of content.
The company was "pushing very hard" to have a similar service available in Australia by December this year. The company would add other "extra features over time" to the basic TiVo product.
