Video in Asia

Asia is set to be the engine that drives the growth of the global pay-TV industry. Thanks to emerging economies such as India, Indonesia and the Philippines, pay-TV is expected to reach 101 million TV homes in the region by 2023.

At the same time, consumer viewing habits are evolving. Now, audiences demand more channel choices, better picture quality, and the ability to watch programmes on multiple devices.
