If you are in media production or distribution, you are probably paying attention to the Pay TV market. Here is an article from Broadcast Enginneering that has the latest.

While the global pay TV market continued to grow

in the first two quarters of 2013, adding 23 million new subscribers, a 3 percent increase; the pay TV market in North America grew at its slowest pace due to market saturation, according to new data from ABI Research.

The data, presented in ABI Research’s quarterly “Pay TV ARPU and Revenues,” also reveals telco TV and satellite TV growth was robust while cable and terrestrial pay TV services experienced virtually flat growth.

“ABI Research expects that worldwide pay TV subscribers will reach 895 million by the end of 2013, to generate service revenue of $245 billion,” said Jake Saunders, VP and practice director of core forecasting.

Client Comments

quote1-40The preview disc you sent looks stunning--over the weekend, I put it up on a large screen at UCSC with a Christie projector just to check and Moumen Smihi was thrilled. We showed his Si Moh that you did and it also looked great.

quote1-40I premiered many scenes from your recent 35mm transfers in the new Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, and they were a HUGE hit. I am very much looking forward to doing more work with you. Thanks so much!

quote1-40I just had to let you know how happy my client was with the quality of the 8mm film transfer you did for him. At 6000 ft of film (25 years of his families' life) there was a lot to deal with. Your technical expertise was very helpful in choosing the right digital format both for the subsequent edit we went through, and in hitting my clients budget and quality concerns. Feel free to use me as a reference at anytime. The whole experience was professional and very easy. Once again thank you.
