Nearly one-half of Spanish broadband households receive local broadcast TV channels only

Content and Access Services Analyst to present new entertainment research at Broadband World Forum

Dallas, Texas, October 21, 2014 - New European IoT research from Parks Associates finds nearly one-half of Spanish broadband households receive only local broadcast TV channels, compared to over 60% of British and German broadband households that pay separate monthly fees for pay-TV services.


"Nearly 70% of Spanish broadband households have Internet-connected CE, and 54% have active PC-to-TV connections," said Glenn Hower, research analyst, Parks Associates. "Given that these connected consumers have easy access to broadcast and Internet content, it is difficult to sell pay-TV services in the highly competitive European markets."

Hower will highlight new European entertainment research while chairing a session during the Future Disruption track at Broadband World Forum, on Wednesday, October 22, in Amsterdam.
