Advanced Television:Satellite video in “massive” downward trend
A study from Northern Sky research (NSR) confirms a definite downward trend in video-related revenues for the world’s main satellite operators. NSR’s Satellite Industry Financial Analysis, 10th Edition report gives the good news first, saying: “The satcom industry continues to witness mixed financial results, with non-video revenues growing across multiple verticals.”
“Video (including DTH and Video Distribution) revenue continued to slow massively, contracting by 15.1 per cent cumulatively in 2019 YoY for the top six operators analysed. European hotspots remain under stress as SES and Eutelsat continue to face challenges in declining hotspot prices.
