IPTV Market in France 2015-2019
Internet protocol television (IPTV) is a system through which TV services are delivered by a private network to end-users via the internet. The IPTV services are not transmitted through traditional radio frequency broadcasts, cable TV formats, or satellite signals. The network management methods and architecture that are used in IPTV are based on the internet protocol suite over a packet-switched network infrastructure. IPTV services are generally divided into three categories, namely, live TV shows, repeat telecasts, and video on demand (VoD) wherein users can select and demand specific shows from a directory provided to them.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “One key trend in the market is the increase in demand for IPTV-based converged services. Converged services of internet, telephony, and TV enable the interaction of existing services in a continuous manner to provide value-added services to consumers. Hence, IPTV service providers are continuously focusing on converged services to increase their revenue and improve the level of customer satisfaction.”
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the rise in demand for enhanced interactivity in TV services. An IP-based platform provides significant opportunities to make the TV viewing experience more interactive and personalized. The operator may include an interactive program guide that enables viewers to search for content by title or actor’s name.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges that the market faces is competition from other pay-TV operators. Cable TV operators are offering bundled services such as triple play services and time-shifted convenience viewing to subscribers to generate high revenue and improve their market position. This hinders the growth of the IPTV operators in the market.
