Cutting back on pay TV

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Pay TV has been one of the winners during the global financial crisis and even though many pay TV companies have increased their charges, subscribers have stayed with them, making the industry recession proof, so far!

According to a survey in the US by the Yankee Group, it seems that things are about to change, with over twelve per cent of pay TV subscribers planning on cutting back or cutting off their cable and satellite TV subscriptions.

There is no clear cut reason as to why this is taking place now, but there is trend for pay TV subscribers to cut back on the cost of premium channels and other services.

Pay TV is big business in the US with around 90 per cent of homes subscribing to some form or pay TV, but that would seem to be changing.
