According to Digital TV Research, pay TV subscriptions for 338 operators across 89 countries will increase by 200 million from a collective 704 million in 2014 to 904 million by 2020, largely driven by growth in emerging markets in the Asia-Pacific region. Western Europe and North America are expected to see declines in subscriber numbers. The research house estimates that 29 operators had more than 5 million paying subs by end-2014.

Despite adding 200 million subscribers between 2014 and 2020, subscription and VOD revenues for the 338 operators is expected to remain flat at $183 billion. From the total, 34 pay TV operators earned more than $1 billion in subscription and VOD revenues in 2014.
