In its latest report, Digital TV Research forecasts that there will be 60 million pay TV subscribers by 2027, declining from 105 million in the peak year of 2010.
Commenting on the findings of the report, Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “The US lost 6 million pay-TV subscribers each year from 2019 to 2021. Losses will decrease from now on, but the 2027 total will be 12 million lower than 2021”.
The number of households without a pay-TV subscription will rocket from 11.34 million in 2010 to 72.86 million in 2027 due mainly to cord cutting.
Pay-TV revenues peaked in 2014, at $101 billion. A $48 billion decline is forecast between 2014 and 2027, halving the total to $53 billion.
