Global IPTV subscribers increase by 6 mln in Q4

Friday 6 May 2016 | 11:11 CET | News
Another 6 million people worldwide subscribed to IPTV in the fourth quarter of 2015, the strongest growth in two years, according to research by Point Topic. China accounted for the strongest growth, adding 3.7 million subscribers. Growth stagnated in the US, as operators such as AT&T focus more on satellite TV, and growth also slowed in Eastern Europe. In West Europe, around 1 million IPTV subscribers were added in the quarter. The share of global broadband subscribers also taking IPTV from the same provider increased to 17.9 percent from 17.3 in Q3 2015 and 15.3 in Q4 2014.
