ABI: Worldwide Pay-TV Subscriptions to Grow

27 Sep, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey

All that talk of cord cutting still won’t keep worldwide pay-TV subscriptions from growing 5% year-over-year in 2012, according to research firm ABI.

Despite constant pay-TV subscriber losses in North America, growth in the Asia-Pacific market — to the tune of more than 27 million added subscribers in 2012 — will see worldwide pay-TV subscriptions expand 5% this year to more than 858 million, ABI reports.

U.S. pay-TV operators may have lost nearly 800,000 subscribers during the first half of the year, but multi-system operators showed gains in both broadband and IPTV subscribers during the same period, ABI reported.
