Based on Digital TV Research Ltd’s forecasts for 73 countries, pay TV revenues will climb to US$173 billion in 2016, up by US$49 billion on 2006 but only up by US$18 billion (12%) on 2010. The Digital TV World Revenue Forecasts report stated that on-demand revenues will increase much faster than subscription revenues, though on-demand will only reach US$5.7 billion (or 3.3% of the total) by 2016. Subscription revenues will stutter as more homes convert to bundles, thus reducing TV-related income.
DTH [DBS] revenues will overtake cable TV revenues in 2011. DTH revenues will reach US$86 billion in 2016, up from US$71 billion in 2010. DTH will command nearly half the total revenues by 2016, up from 43% in 2006.
The US will remain the world’s largest pay TV revenue earner by some distance. However, its revenues will fall by nearly US$3 billion between 2010 and 2016 as homes convert to bundles and as competition increases. On the other hand, Brazil’s revenues will more than double over the same period, with India also enjoying impressive growth.
