In October 2010, the marketing research agency DISCOVERY Research Group completed a study of the IP television market in the United States.
The market for IP television or interactive television in the United States is still in its infancy. According to various estimates, the volume of the American IPTV market in 2009. made up from 300 with a small thousand subscribers to 1 million, although the share of this segment in the total amount of subscriber base of pay TV was no more than 2-3%.
At the same time, the market is developing at the fastest rate - the growth of new subscribers for the year is more than 50%. According to the forecast for 2010. the volume of the subscriber base of interactive television will exceed the figure of 1 million users.
IPTV has indisputable advantages over other segments of pay-TV - the image and sound are usually of higher quality, up to HD resolution and 5.1-channel audio; interactivity (the ability to view, for example, help on the film); service capabilities of timeshift and video-on-demand, etc.
Determining factor of low demand for interactive television services is their cost. According to ComNews Research, the average American subscribers pay 9.95 rubles for an IPTV channel in a package. per month, and for cable - 4.35 rubles. per month.
One of the problems in the development of pay TV is piracy. It affects the popularity of the video on demand service. In addition, the traditional TV in its current form clearly exhausts itself: now I think that the stereotype is not fashionable, I do not watch TV.
Most potential consumers have no experience in using video content for money. Another problem of the American IPTV market is the inability to interest a potential consumer in the “breadth of the range”. In addition to the problems described above for the IPTV market, there is also a high cost of subscriber devices.
The key technological factors influencing the market, as in the past years, remain the rapid growth of broadband access, the cheapening and expansion of the bandwidth available to the user, the development of coding and content protection technologies, and the increased performance of computing systems.
Due to the complementary nature of broadcasting and IP broadcasting, to increase the efficiency, operators are increasingly resorting to a hybrid way of providing services: broadcasting is used for broadcasting federal channels, and IP television is used for additional premium content.
The IPTV market is currently divided between three major players: Comstar-UTS (provides services under the Stream-TV brand) - it accounts for just over 30% of all subscribers using this service. A quarter of all subscribers belong to the Far Eastern daughter “SvyazinVesta "- Dalsvyaz company (TVi brand). VimpelCom (Beeline brand) is the third largest player on the market - about 15% of all IPTV subscribers. A significant part of regional companies that provide IPTV services has a subscriber base of no more than 1-2 thousand clients. Short description of the study. Ready marketing research of the American IP TV market. The report contains information on the market volume, growth rates, trends and development prospects and other key indicators.
