Digital pay-TV subscriptions exceed 1 bln in 2017

Wednesday 21 March 2018 | 14:34 CET | News
Digital pay-TV subscriptions, including cable, satellite and IPTV, exceeded 1 billion for the first time in 2017, according to data from IHS. Digital pay-TV growth came largely from the Asia-Pacific region and the number of subscriptions increased in all regions but dropped in North America. The global growth comes despite the continued uptake of over-the-top (OTT) subscription video services, like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, which attracted more than three times the number of subscriptions than pay-TV in 2017.
