Changing the channels
This once mature industry is experiencing growth as technological changes offer subscribers the bundling of a number of services. Providers will also benefit from an expanded number of channels available in digital format and new services such as video-on-demand and interactive TV. The shift to new value-added digital cable and satellite services will continue to promote growth in revenue.
This industry comprises operators primarily engaged as third-party distribution systems for broadcast programming. The operators deliver visual, aural, or textual programming received from cable networks, local television stations, or radio networks to consumers via cable or direct-to-home satellite systems on a subscription or fee basis.
