Cable Networks in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Cable Networks in Canada

The longstanding health of the Cable Networks industry in Canada has been compromised. Both consumers and the Canadian government have increasingly explored potential alternatives to the cable distribution model, which has limited expansion over the past five years. Internet-based streaming services, such as Netflix and Hulu, have posed a threat to the industry's stronghold on TV programming, and increasing domestic investment by these companies have taken its toll on industry operations. The industry's tepid growth during the current period is a result of both external competition and a regulatory landscape that has hindered expansionary strategies. Despite intensifying competition, content diversification and tiered pricing models are expected to pave the way for growth.

This industry distributes TV programs on a subscription or fee basis through cable systems. Industry operators include specialty TV cable networks and pay-per-view programming. Programming production and satellite broadcasters are excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
