Over a third of Spanish connected homes use pay-TV

Friday 16 November 2018 | 10:39 CET | News
Over one in three Spanish households with internet access use payment platforms to view audiovisual content online, according to a consumer survey conducted by regulator CNMC corresponding to the second quarter of 2018. Telefonica's Movistar+ service continued to lead the IPTV market with 2.2 million users, or 13.4 percent of households, at the end of June but is now just ahead of fast-rising Netflix, with 2 million users, equivalent to a 12.5 percent household penetration rate. Earlier this year Telefonica announced a multi-year agreement to integrate Netflix into its pay-TV portfolio.
