Channel surfing: Demand for bundled packages will offset steady declines in cable subscriptions
Cable Providers in the US
Over the five years to 2017, revenue for the Cable Providers industry is expected to increase due to rate adjustments and subscriber upgrades, despite a decline in cable TV subscriptions.
However, the Federal Communications Commission has reclassified high-speed internet as a telecommunications service, allowing it to regulate broadband internet service as a public utility. This will prevent cable providers from sharing the cost of infrastructure investments with content companies, potentially cutting into profit margins.
Over the next five years, the industry is expected to benefit from the addition of high-speed internet subscribers and upgrades to higher-margin digital cable services. High market penetration and changing consumer preferences will likely lower cable subscriptions further.
This industry consists of companies that operate wired, third-party distribution systems for broadcast programming. These operators deliver TV programming received from cable networks or local TV stations to consumers via cable infrastructure on a subscription basis. Cable providers also offer internet access and internet-protocol telephony services, usually as a package bundled with a cable TV subscription.
This industry excludes telecommunications carriers.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
