Liberty Global President and CEO Mike Fries stated, "2012 was a great year for our company and we finished on a high note, reporting our strongest subscriber growth ever in the fourth quarter. For the full year we added 1.6 million organic RGUs, including 465,000 in Q4 alone. These record results were driven by the success of our triple-play bundles, which leverage our superior broadband speeds and resulted in record annual broadband internet and telephony subscriber additions.
"At the same time, we made significant progress on our product roadmap with the introduction in the Dutch market of Horizon TV, our revolutionary media and entertainment platform. Within five short months we have sold over 100,000 subscriptions and have over 200,000 unique users enjoying our on-line and multiscreen services in the Netherlands. In January of 2013, we introduced Horizon TV in Switzerland and the response has been overwhelmingly positive."
