Video in Asia

Pay-TV in Asia is set for massive growth, led by emerging economies such as India, Indonesia and the Philippines. In the Asia-Pacific region, pay-TV is projected to reach 101 million homes by 2023.

Furthermore, consumer preferences in the region are evolving past linear TV. In Asia-Pacific, over-the-top (OTT) investment is spurring the fastest subscriber growth rate worldwide in 2018, rising 35.2% to 331.5 million1. Pay-TV operators are responding by offering their own OTT services to compete with mainstream OTT operators.

With mobile device usage on the rise in the region, content providers are looking for solutions to stream video content to multiple devices. While video accounted for 55% of total mobile data traffic in 2015, this number is expected to rise to 75% in 20202.
