U.S. Virtual Pay TV Subscription Forecast, 2019–2023

This IDC study presents a forecast of virtual pay TV subscribers in the United States through 2023 and an analysis of key developments and market drivers and inhibitors."IDC estimates that subscribers to virtual pay TV services in the United States totaled over 7.1 million at the end of 2018," says Greg Ireland, research director, Multiscreen Video at IDC. "Hulu and Google's YouTube TV continue to make gains in the virtual pay TV market, fueling additional pressure on traditional pay TV providers that are experiencing cord-cutting across cable, satellite, and telco TV services. This sets up an ongoing battle between incumbent pay TV providers and new entrants to capture share and define the next generation of consumer video experiences."
