Comcast reported higher-than-expected sales in the fourth quarter, buoyed in part by its NBCUniversal division, but growth was modest across most of its business.

Cable revenue rose 4.5% in the last three months of 2021 to $16.41 billion as revenues from broadband, business and wireless customers were offset by losses advertising and voice revenue.

Comcast fell short of expectations for new broadband Internet customers, adding 212,000, down 60% from the same period last year, and below analysts’ expectations.

Revenue from theme parks in its NBCUniversal division nearly tripled, rising 191.3%, to $1.89 billion.

Comcast’s latest earnings report marks a change from 2020, when the strength of its telecommunications unit helped offset an 18% drop in revenue from its NBCUniversal unit. Coronavirus regulations meant sporting events were canceled or delayed while theme parks and cinemas were closed.

The company today reported net income of $3.1 billion, nearly 10% lower than the same period a year earlier. Total revenue in the quarter was $30.4 billion, slightly higher than analyst estimates of $29.6 billion.

Revenue from Sky, which was bought by Comcast for £30.6bn in 2018, fell 2.4% to $5.1bn, mainly due to lower content revenue, driven by a modification of the license agreements in Italy and Germany.

However, Sky’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization rose 234% to $464 million quarter-on-quarter, largely due to significantly lower operating costs for programming and production, in particular in his athletic division.
