Satellite TV to Remain Robust Despite OTT Threat

A report from research and consultancy firm NSR finds that, despite increasing concerns about OTT video, the linear TV via satellite market will continue to show solid growth. By 2024 the market will see an increase of over 21,000 channels across both DTH and video distribution platforms. The proliferation of Ultra-HD, HD and SD channels, along with limited global impact from OTT platforms, enable linear TV via satellite to continue upwards over the next decade.

“Although OTT platforms have become increasingly mature in North America, elsewhere the development of OTT platforms is in its infancy and is expected to have limited impact on traditional video platforms in the short to medium term,” stated Alan Crisp, Analyst with NSR and lead author of the report.
