Key growth will be driven by the Asian-Pacific market, which is expected to add more than 27 million subscribers in 2012. U.S. cablecos have been facing a continuous decline in pay-TV subs, the group says; in the first two quarters of 2012, operators lost nearly 0.8 million subs, although their broadband subscriber base has continued to grow.
