Africa Pay TV Forecasts
Published: January 6, 2020 Content info: 282 Pages
Description

Africa will have 47.26 million pay TV subscribers by 2025, up from 30.70 million at end-2019. Nigeria will contribute 10 million subscribers by 2025 - having overtaken South Africa in 2020.

African subscriber numbers will climb by 54% between 2019 and 2025, but pay TV revenues will rise by only 31% - indicating that subscribers will pay less. Pay TV revenues will reach $7.20 billion by 2025, up by $1.72 billion on 2019.

Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “Despite the strong subscriber growth, competition is intense. Prices and ARPUs are falling as rivals fight to gain subscribers.”
