DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 28, 2020--

The “Africa Pay TV Forecasts” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Published in January 2020, this research comes in three parts:

Africa will have 47.26 million pay TV subscribers by 2025, up from 30.70 million at end-2019. Nigeria will contribute 10 million subscribers by 2025 - having overtaken South Africa in 2020.

African subscriber numbers will climb by 54% between 2019 and 2025, but pay TV revenues will rise by only 31% - indicating that subscribers will pay less. Pay TV revenues will reach $7.20 billion by 2025, up by $1.72 billion on 2019.

Three groups accounted for 93% of Sub-Saharan Africa’s pay TV subscribers in 2019 - although this proportion will fall to 88% by 2025. Each of the three main groups provides a satellite TV platform and a pay DTT platform.

Multichoice had 14.56 million subs across satellite TV platform DStv and DTT platform GOtv by end-2019. This total will grow to 18.05 million by 2025, with a marked slowdown in satellite TV growth.
