Global Pay TV Revenue Databook

Global Pay TV Revenue Databook

Pay TV revenues for 138 countries increased by $32 billion between 2010 and 2016 to reach $202 billion. However, only $1.23 billion was added in 2016, according to the Global Pay TV Revenue Databook.

Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “Despite its pay TV revenues being higher in 2016 than in 2010, North America peaked in 2015. Its 2016 total was $1.77 billion down on 2015. Although no decline was recorded, European pay TV revenue growth has slowed down considerably.”

More positively, the Asia Pacific region added $10.21 billion between 2010 and 2016 – up by 42% to $34.38 billion. Latin America increased by 78% to $18.44 billion. Sub-Saharan Africa more than doubled its total to $4.20 billion.
