The global pay-TV market continues to grow despite a decline in the North America pay-TV market in 2012, notes ABI Research, adding that market will reach 858.1 million at the end of 2012, a 5-percent year-on-year increment from 2011. 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. IPTV, which has less penetration than cable or satellite in the U.S. market, gained around 0.6 million subscribers during the same period.
