57 million IPTV homes forecast by 2013
Global IPTV usage is predicted to triple over the next three years
In the fourth edition of its global IPTV report, principal analyst Simon Murray, says: “Strong growth will result in 57 million IPTV homes by 2013 - or triple the end-2008 figure.”
Yet IPTV usage will still be dwarfed by broadcast TV usage.
“Despite this acceleration, only 4% of the world's TV households are forecast to subscribe to IPTV platforms by 2013,” said Yarwood. “In fact, only 14 countries will have more than 1 million IPTV subs.”
