100 Million Satellite TV Subscribers Expected by 2008

Research and Markets has announced the addition of Worldwide Digital Satellite Pay-TV Market to their offering.

Digital Direct-to-Home (DTH) pay-TV revenues continue to grow at a faster rate than subscribers, as annual average revenue per user (ARPU) grows with price increases and additional services. Revenues will be US$46 billion in 2005 and will rise to US$80 billion in 2009, the high-tech market research firm says.

In countries where DTH pay-TV has been available for over five years, as in North America and Europe, the market is mature and subscriber growth is slowing. Where DTH pay-TV platforms were launched after 2000, subscriber growth rates are higher. In India, for example, DTH pay-TV subscribers are expected to have tripled in 2005.

This recent report found the following:

  • The digital DTH pay-TV market is now in its 12th year, with 60 platforms in countries around the world.
  • By the end of 2008, there will be 100 million digital DTH pay-TV subscribers, continuing the DTH reign as the top digital TV platform.
  • The expected launch of a DTH pay-TV platform in China in 2006 or 2007 will help make Asia the fastest-growing region for DTH pay-TV subscribers.

The report, “Worldwide Digital Satellite Pay-TV Market” covers the top digital DTH pay-TV platforms worldwide, and discusses the DTH market in each country with a DTH pay-TV provider. Also included is information on new platforms launching in India and China, as well as plans for new HD and DVR services. Five-year forecasts for digital DTH pay-TV subscribers, revenues, and annual ARPU by region are provided.
