"Pay-TV continues to grow fairly well, but piracy remains a problem across the region and this needs to be tackled if the sector is to move on to the next level."

Adam Thomas, Media Research Manager, Informa Telecoms & Media

By 2019, the Middle East and North Africa region will have more than 15 million homes taking a pay-TV service.

This significant level of penetration highlights the rich prospects for growth developing in the region, particularly as there are now some signs that the piracy problem is being addressed.


Satellite TV has long dominated the MENA region’s TV sector, but in several territories some important changes are occurring. This year, Informa’s analysis of this key region includes a full update of detailed metrics including pay-TV revenues, ARPU and a breakdown between subscription and on-demand revenues. Additionally, it is provided in an innovative new PowerPoint-based format.

This will provide you with insights that are:
> More IMMEDIATE. The country profiles are rich in charts, graphs and other graphics. The focus in the new-style report has shifted to analyzing the market in a more visual way – emphasizing key areas for ease of reference.
> More FLEXIBLE. Presented in an easy-to-use PowerPoint that is simple to manipulate, so clients can easily export charts, data and other findings into their own presentations, reports and documents.
> More OPINIONATED. Each country update has an extended ‘Informa Viewpoint’. This makes it clear what Informa’s take is on each market to assist your own business decisions.
> WIDER in focus. A section called ‘Next-generation TV’ looks beyond the traditional TV platforms (cable, satellite, IPTV, terrestrial) and analyzes new developments in areas like over-the-top video, catch-up TV and multiscreen.
