CAMPBELL, CA, Dec 15, 2010 — Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its updated Residential Voice, Data, and Video Services in North America market share and forecast report.
“Considering that revenue from video services will rival that of voice services by 2014, one of the more interesting trends going on in the residential services market is the number of video subscribers that are jumping from cable to satellite and telco IPTV. In 2010, residential cable video subscriber numbers are flat, while satellite video subscribers have been increasing slowly but surely over the last few years, and telco IPTV subscribers are up 40% from last year. Video services are proving to be a hard fought battle. While cable operators have a legacy in North America, they have been unbending in their pricing policies, and as a result are losing record number of subscribers to less expensive alternatives,” notes Diane Myers, Infonetics Research’s directing analyst for VoIP and IMS..
