Dealer Data: IPTV to Grown in ‘07
Will consumers be turning to the internet to watch their favorite shows? (And we’re not talking about YouTube.) You might think so if you look at some new data from iSuppli, which claims that internet protocol television services (IPTV) are expected to gain some traction in 2007.
According to the group, the number of subscribers of IPTV worldwide may come close to tripling this year and that with the arrival of more competitors in the market, the variety and pricing of IPTV services will improve for consumers, iSuppli predicts. What are numbers? The group predicts global IPTV subscribers will reach 14.5 million in 2007, up a 192.4 percent from 4.9 million in 2006. By 2010, worldwide IPTV subscribers will amount to 63 million.
