Thanks to a growing tide of subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) and linear over-the-top (OTT) services, the US pay TV market is evolving from an industry dominated by a handful of cable and satellite providers to a more complex ecosystem that also includes standalone streaming services, TV networks, aggregators and—potentially—social media companies. This report examines the business ramifications of this evolution in the nature of pay TV.
"The US adult digital video audience has been growing steadily at the expense of pay TV viewers, whose numbers continue to decline. These aren’t mutually exclusive groups, but they have been trending in opposite directions. If current trends persist, we will likely see a convergence point early next decade."
