TelecomView Study: TelcoTV Will Hold Its Own Against Internet TV


SAN FRANCISCO - Internet TV has come storming onto the scene raising the question of how TelcoTV and other traditional TV services are going to survive. TelecomView’s new report The Battle for Broadband TV: TelcoTV vs. Internet TV analyzes the impact of Internet TV on TelcoTV in particular.

“We forecast that people will spend about as much time watching TelcoTV as they do Internet TV in 2011,” stated Ian Cox, Principal Analyst at TelecomView. “In addition, our forecasts show that on line and on demand services will account for nearly all of the growth in film revenues over the next five years.”

The report includes an analysis of strengths and weaknesses of TelcoTV and Internet TV and discusses how TelcoTV operators can take advantage of the creativity of Internet TV. It discusses the business case for TelcoTV services and gives forecasts for the amount of time people will watch TelcoTV and Internet TV services. It also forecasts revenues for films that include theatrical releases, DVD rentals and sales, video on demand, and Internet download and streaming services. All of these forecasts are global and by region.

“The TelcoTV operators have a strong position in this market,” stated Bob Larribeau, Principal Analyst at TelecomView and author of the report. “The increasing popularity of HDTV and the need to support multiple TVs in the home give TelcoTV an advantage serving the TV that Internet TV will not be able to match over the next five years.”

This 80 page report addresses these issues and provides the information and analysis that TelcoTV providers, Internet TV operators, and system suppliers need to succeed in this market.
