The bleak market outlook in the last quarter of 2008 did not seem to deter the growth of pay TV, according to ABI Research’s new study, "Pay-TV Subscriptions." Service operators, especially those in mature high-speed Internet economies – many of which are in the Asia-Pacific region – continue to strive to provide interactive bi-directional television. ABI expects APAC to continue leading subscription growth, delivering a 37 percent CAGR (compound annual growth rate) over the next three years.

According to the study, telco TV in general is expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 29 percent over the next three years to 47 million subscribers globally by the end of 2011.
