Latin America Pay TV Forecasts
Published: March 9, 2020 Content info: 190 Pages

The Latin American pay TV sector has been hit by the recession. The number of pay TV subscribers fell by 4 million in 2019. Digital TV Research forecasts 67 million pay TV subscribers by 2025 - down from 72 million in the peak year of 2017.

Brazil lost 3 million pay TV subscribers in the four years to 2019. Its peak year of 2014 will not be bettered before 2025. The same is true of Mexico, which has lost subscribers since its peak year of 2016.

Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “Satellite TV is the biggest pay TV loser. Digital TV Research forecasts 28 million satellite TV subscribers by 2025; down from the peak of 36 million in 2017.”
