Viacom ($749 million) will reap the highest revenues of any international channel group in Europe in 2013, according to a new report from Digital TV Research. Covering 225 international channels/networks from 11 groups, the TV Channel Revenues in Europe report estimates that Viacom will be followed by Eurosport ($651 million) and Discovery ($620 million).
Viacom will remain the largest channel group (growing to $975 million in 2018), again followed by Eurosport ($801 million) and Discovery ($772 million) – (although Discovery and Eurosport may have merged operations by then).
Nicholas Moncrieff, report author, said: “The recession has hurt some regions more than others. The UK is buoyant overall, but no growth is expected in Spain & Portugal and Italy until next year. The estimates and forecasts in this report have been prepared using an analysis of a database of hundreds of financial records.”
Total revenues for Europe’s top pay TV channels reached $4.21 billion in 2012, and will grow by 31% to $5.52 billion by 2018. Although it provides the bulk of the total, carriage fee revenue growth is slowing as markets mature. Carriage fee revenues will climb by 14.1% from $2.91 billion in 2012 to $3.32 billion in 2018. Advertising revenues will increase by 69% from $1.30 billion in 2012 to $2.20 billion by 2018.
The UK and Ireland combined are the largest country group. Perhaps more surprising to some is that Eastern Europe is already the second largest region, and it is expected to gain ground on the UK & Ireland over the next five years.
This report covers European revenues for 225 international channels/networks for 11 major groups. Excluding premium channels, this report reveals where each international group is strongest and which are the most influential groups overall. Furthermore, the report forecasts revenues (both from carriage fees and from advertising) for eight European regions for every year from 2011 to 2018.
The estimates and forecasts in this report have been prepared using an analysis of a database of hundreds of financial records for individual channels, channel groups and corporate parents. The figures have then been stress tested against peer group data, as well as channel distribution figures in terms of subscribers, homes and platforms.
