Africa's digital TV penetration to reach 95.5% by 2018

Tuesday 8 January 2013 | 04:03 CET | News
About 35.3 percent of TV homes in Sub-Saharan Africa took digital signals by end-2012, according to a study by Digital TV Research. The digital TV penetration will grow to 95.5 percent by 2018, with household numbers quadrupling to 49 million. Full digital transition will have been completed in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia by end-2015. Two-thirds of the region's TV households still received analogue terrestrial signals by end-2012, though this proportion will drop to 4.5 percent in 2018. Two-thirds of television homes will take DTT (pay and free-to-air combined) in 2018, up from only 11.7 percent at end-2012. Sub-Saharan Africa will have 33.8 million DTT homes by 2018, 25.7 million FTA and 8 million pay, up from 4.6 million in total at end-2012.
