Comcast gains video subs in 4Q

Jan 28, 2014

Comcast added 43,000 video subscribers in the fourth quarter—the first quarterly gain in six and a half years—as uptake of its X1 set-top box helped it retain customers and boost video-on-demand spending.

Net income rose 26 percent to $1.91 billion, or 72 cents per share, from $1.52 billion, or 56 cents per share a year ago. However, the increase was partly due to a one-time tax windfall of $158 million.

Excluding the tax gain, earnings per share came to 66 cents, slightly below the 68 cents per share expected by analysts polled by FactSet.

Revenue rose 6 percent to $16.93 billion, beating the $16.65 billion expected by analysts.
