Latin America OTT TV and Video Forecasts

Latin America OTT TV and Video Forecasts

Revenues from OTT TV episodes and movies for 19 Latin American countries will reach $4.60 billion in 2022; up from the $1.87 billion recorded in 2016. SVOD will remain the region’s largest OTT revenue source; contributing $2.86 billion by 2022 (62% of the total). 

The Latin America OTT TV and Video Forecasts report forecasts 32.54 million SVOD subscribers by 2022; nearly double from the 17.08 million recorded at end-2016. Brazil will account for 34% of the region’s SVOD subs by 2022, with Mexico bringing in a further 28%. 

Pan-regional services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Claro Video, Blim, HBO, Crackle and Movistar Play are adding a competitive edge to the SVOD sector.

The top seven regional platforms will account for 88% of the region’s paying SVOD subscribers by end-2022. Netflix will remain the largest pan-regional SVOD platform by some distance, with half of the region’s total by 2022 (down from a 64% share in 2016).
