Poor Economy Wonít Stop Skyrocketing Growth of IPTV


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Not even a global financial meltdown can stop IPTV. Despite the worldwide economic crisis, subscribers to telco TV, which includes TV delivered by telecom operators via IP as well as other technologies, will grow more than three-fold by the end of 2012, reports In-Stat . In several key markets, like Brazil, Korea, and India, recent regulatory changes have given telco TV a real boost, the high-tech market research firm says.

ďA number of new countries, including places as varied as Montenegro, Jordan, and Ghana, saw the launch of their first commercial IPTV offerings in 2008,Ē says Michelle Abraham, In-Stat analyst. ďOnly a few markets, like Japan and Argentina, remain hamstrung by restrictions that hinder incumbent operators.Ē
