Meanwhile, 4K/UHD, OTT video, and cord-cutting and -shaving are reshaping the pay-TV space.

    IHS Markit has updated its Australian pay TV data in light of the latest guidance on the performance of market leader Foxtel provided by major shareholder News Corp Australia. Pay TV providers continue to show resilience but growth has plateaued, a sentiment echoed in the Q4 2017 filings by News Corp, which indicate a downward revision in its future outlook for the business. As such, IHS Markit has adjusted its forecasts on the Australian pay TV market accordingly, which now illustrate contrasting fortunes for the two main players – Foxtel’s subscriber base is going down, while Fetch TV’s is on the up.

    As usual at this time of year, I did my pilgrimage to Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress, which according to the GSMA was attended by 107,000 people—1,000 fewer than last year. Was this due to the cold front that hit the entire European region all the way to the south? Many people did not manage to land in Barcelona due to flight cancellations. Meanwhile, this event is branded as the world’s largest of its kind, at least in the not-so-vibrant mobile industry. To provide some perspective, I like to remind people that founder and CEO Marc Benioff brought 170,000 people to the Dreamforce event in San Francisco last year; that is one-fifth of the city’s population, and cruise ships were provided to address insufficient hotel room supply. More importantly, I conducted my usual C-level service provider tour, a mix of formal and informal discussions. Some were scheduled, and others were just on the run. And, of course, it was all about 5G. Clients, please log in to view the full content.
