More than a quarter of the world’s TV households will subscribe to triple-play services (3P - TV, broadband and telephony) by 2016, according to Digital TV Research. The Triple-Play Forecasts report (covering 73 countries) estimates that this is up from only 7.1% penetration at end-2010.
The 2016 3P penetration doesn’t sound too impressive until you realize that this represents 387 million homes, up from 96 million at end-2010.
Triple-play revenues will reach US$170 billion by 2016, nearly US$100 billion more than the 2010 total. The US will supply US$39 billion of the additional revenues, with Japan up by US$9 billion and China increasing by US$8 billion. China’s 2016 total will be 10 times its 2010 total.
