Pay-TV Innovation Forum | March-September 2017

London, Singapore, Las Vegas and Amsterdam.

How will leading pay-TV service providers respond to changing consumer demand and expectations?

How can advanced data and analytics enable pay-TV service providers to better serve their customers?

What growth prospects lie ahead and how can pay-TV service providers, content owners and the studios work together to best leverage opportunities?


Developed by NAGRA, in partnership with leading research consultancy MTM, the Pay-TV Innovation Forum set out to answer these questions and more in the form of a new global research program for senior pay-TV executives with the mission of exploring the innovations and strategies that will drive the next phase of growth for pay-TV operators – in TV, OTT and adjacent markets. It covers 42 countries across four regions – Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America and Latin America.


The 2017 programme will run from March to September 2017 and include a global analysis of pay-TV service provider product and service portfolios, in-depth interviews and surveys with leading industry participants, and a series of regional seminars in the United States, Europe and Asia. A flagship final report, summarising the key findings from the programme, will be unveiled leading up to the IBC Exhibition and Conference in September 2017.


Key discussion topics include:
• The growth and development of OTT including new direct-to-consumer offerings, pay-TV provider OTT services, and new video offerings from major internet businesses like Facebook and Google;
• The development of mobile-first and VR offerings, as part of the pay-TV ecosystem;
• The changing nature of piracy, exploring new developments across the industry;
• The changing pay-TV consumer experience and the nature of consumer demand;
• The impact of public and private cloud and virtualisation on the development, management and distribution of pay-TV services.
