Report highlghts include:
Global pay-TV subscribers ballooned to nearly 800 million in 2014 (up 5 percent); for the first time, the OTT pay-TV segment provided the strongest growth
Over the 5 years from 2014 to 2019, OTT pay-TV services are forecast by IHS to have the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of any pay-TV service
Cable pay-TV revenue growth slowed to 1.8 per cent in 2014, largely due to sluggish subscriber growth in North America, where net video subscribers are declining around 1 to 3 per cent annually"
