Parks Associates: 66% of pay-TV subscribers in Western Europe have access to multiscreen services from their pay-TV operator
CONNECTIONS Europe(TM) addresses growth and challenges for pay-TV markets, 13-14 November
The conference agenda, featuring speakers from Sky Deutschland, TiVo, Nagra, Irdeto, YuMe, and others, includes several sessions addressing the impact of multiscreen services. Currently, 66% of Western European pay-TV subscribers are able to get these services, compared to only 36% in mid-2011.
"The competition from OTT services, growth in broadband penetration, and consumer adoption of connected devices all drove the rapid deployment of multiscreen services, and now operators are looking to shift focus from customer retention to monetization," said Stuart Sikes, President, Parks Associates. "CONNECTIONS™ Europe addresses strategies for service providers to build sustainable multiscreen business models and leverage these offerings to drive adoption of premium video services."
With service providers poised to deploy over 20 million high-end, feature-rich residential gateways in Western Europe this year, multiscreen services may soon be offered in conjunction with other advanced features such as VoIP, advanced home network monitoring, and media sharing.
