IHS Markit: cord cutting takes toll in 14 markets

Significantly, only 6 of the 14 markets affected in 2017 also experienced declines in pay TV revenue. In eight countries — the US, Brazil, Mexico, Sweden, Japan, New Zealand, Norway and Venezuela — operators were able to compensate for customer loses by increasing the amount of revenue generated by their remaining subscriptions. Even in the US, where 3.3 million pay TV subscriptions were lost in 2017, operators were able to collectively increase pay TV revenue by relying on upselling and price increases. – Broadband TV News https://ift.tt/2w6QwfN
