20% European homes to pay for VoD subscriptions

According to figures from Digital TV Research, the European Online TV & Video report predicts that the number of European homes paying for a monthly subscription to a VoD package will climb from the 1.78 million households in 2010 (0.6%) to 17.99 million by the end of this year (6.4%) and 59.41 million by 2020, bringing to the total up to 20.7% of homes.

In line with this, online television and SVoD recenues will soar from $116 million in 2010 to $1.633 billion in 2014 and $5.502 billion in 2020. Within this, the UK will consistently remain the market leader with Germany close behind by 2020.
