Weekly IPTV news roundup

So much is going on in our industry at the moment, I'm having a hard time keeping up.

As is customary for Q1 there’s a wealth of forecast statistics and deployment numbers being circulated in the news. Here’s a brief round-up of stories that I’ve seen in the past few weeks:

IPTV in France
  • 1/3 of all French broadband subscribers now take an IPTV service, according to France's telecoms regulator Arcep.
  • France now has 5.4 million IPTV subscribers and is growing at 39% year on year.
  • France Telecom's Orange TV is the market leader with 1.5m subs or around 27% of the market, with Neuf TV in second place.
Global IPTV
IPTV carriers
  • Estonia's Elion announced that they ended 2008 with 82,500 IPTV and cable subscribers, up from 57,700 the previous year. Elion now estimates it has a 26% share of the cable market but remains in 3rd place after Starman and STV.
