Yup., and there's an obvious reason for that... hockey. Overall still decent results though. Wireless did great and internet/tv continues to grow too.
@Revenue in BCE’s media business was down 2.8 per cent to $740-million, a larger decline than was expected. Advertising revenue continues to suffer in a soft market, exacerbated by Bell Media’s loss of broadcast rights to the NHL playoffs, but cushioned by the popularity of the FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer. The company also said it has 727,000 customers using its CraveTV video streaming service, out of 3.5 million homes that can access it – though it will be available to some 11 million households starting Jan. 1, 2016, when Bell opens access to CraveTV to anyone with an Internet connection.
@BCE added 61,000 net postpaid wireless subscribers – who sign contracts and tend to pay more – beating analysts’ expectations as the company appeared to grab market share from its largest competitor, Rogers Communications Inc. BCE also added 19,000 net Internet subscribers, about 1,000 better than than last year’s second quarter, and 50,000 net television subscribers to its Bell Fibe IPTV service. It lost 34,000 satellite TV subscribers – a trend that’s picking up speed as viewers switch to new fibre-based and cable offerings.
