Global pay TV revenues will peak in 2017 at $202.32 billion. However, no rapid decline will take place after 2017 as revenues will still be as high as $199.73 billion in 2022.
The Global Pay TV Revenue Forecasts report [covering 138 countries] concludes that revenues will fall in North America (by a huge $12 billion), Western Europe (down $566 million) and Eastern Europe (but only by $28 million) between 2016 and 2022. Revenues will decline in 33 countries between 2016 and 2022.
