SVOD accounts for 60% of the growth of pay audiovisual services revenues

  • The report finds:
    • Pay-television revenues increased by 2.8% in Europe in 2016, the lowest growth rate since 2012
    • SVOD still only accounted for 7% of pay-services revenues as its tariffs are much lower than legacy pay-TV
    • But SVOD generated 60% of the increase of the segment
