Pay TV Databook

August 2020


Digital TV Research estimates that pay TV subscriptions increased by 16 million to 1,028 million in 2019 across 138 countries. The growth is in emerging markets.

Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “IPTV is the pay TV winner. IPTV added 49 million subscribers in 2019 to take its total to 307 million. Pay satellite TV fell by 6 million subscribers in 2019. Digital cable TV lost 1 million subs, and analog cable TV shed 25 million subs.”

Excluding analog cable TV, digital pay TV growth is really impressive – rocketing from 380 million subscribers in 2010 onto 991 million at end-2019.
