What's Next in the Volatile Pay-TV Services Market?


There has been an erosion in penetration of pay-TV subscriptions in the United States. They have fallen from a high of 86 percent in 2014 to 83 percent in early 2017, based on Parks Associates recent consumer research. Despite signs in late 2015 and early 2016 that the U.S. cable TV industry finally had reversed years of subscriber losses, the numbers declined again for most cable operators late that same year. Over-the-top video services often are viewed as the primary driver for the declining pay-TV subscriber trend.
