Report Summary:

Western European Digital Television (DTV) subscriptions will grow from 176 million in 2012 to 195 million by 2018, implying a six-year Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 1.73%. The Western European TV market is highly saturated and subject to households subscribing to more than one TV viewing platform. This is primarily due to the prevalence of free-to-view satellite and highly developed DTT services that can often complement competing services for no cost or a low up-front cost. In some cases, this trend results in a penetration rate which exceeds 100% of households.

Digital Terrestrial Transmission (DTT) is the dominant television viewing platform and will continue to be the far-and-away leader among platforms in 2018, comprising 39% of total households. Free-to-view satellite services will continue to climb in countries like Germany, Great Britain, and Italy; however, pay satellite subscriptions are facing pressure from increasingly digitized cable services and the burgeoning growth of IPTV platforms. The transition of cable TV platforms from analog to digital will provide momentum for digital subscription growth through the next six years at a CAGR of 3.53%. Most countries are projected to complete the transition by 2015 and growth will begin to flatten out accordingly. Telcos are investing in expanding IPTV networks across the continent and demand will remain high for this low-priced alternative to satellite and cable.

This interactive database provides in-depth market coverage for the Western European TV market, and provides historical data and forecasts for key metrics including: Households, TV Households, Cable Subscriptions, Analog Cable Subscriptions, Digital TV Households, Analog TV Households, Household Digital TV Penetration, Analog vs. Digital splits, Service Revenues, and Subscriptions by Service (Digital Satellite, Digital Cable, Digital Terrestrial, Telco IPTV).
