Charter Communications' 3rd-qtr revenue rises 4.2 pct

Oct 26 (Reuters) - Charter Communications Inc's revenue rose 4.2 percent for the third quarter, as it signed up more subscribers to its cellular and internet services.

Charter said on Thursday its revenue rose on a pro-forma basis to $10.46 billion in the quarter ended Sept. 30, from $10.04 billion, a year earlier.

The company's net income attributable to shareholders on a pro-forma basis fell to $48 million or 19 cents per share, from $189 million or 69 cents per share, partly due to higher expenses.

Charter reports results on a pro-forma basis to reflect its acquisitions of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks that it made last year. (Reporting by Arjun Panchadar in Bengaluru; Editing by Sai Sachin Ravikumar)
