The Pay Television industry has performed strongly over the past five years due to increasing pay-TV penetration and greater subscription numbers. Industry revenue is expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 4.3% over the five years through 2014-15. Rising real household discretionary income has assisted financial performance over the past five years, as consumers have had more money to spend on non-essential services such as pay-TV subscriptions. This trend has also limited the number of cancelled subscriptions, further assisting industry operators.
Companies in the industry primarily broadcast TV programs on a subscription or fee basis. These services are generally delivered via cables or satellites. Online subscription TV services are not included in the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
