New research from In-Stat, “IPTV In Asia: Carriers Start The Battle”, indicates that although traditional cable/satellite pay TV and IPTV will continue to operate alongside each other, IPTV will gain ground over cable/satellite TV in Asia over the next few years.

IPTV services are set to help telcos in Asia fundamentally change their broadband video services to customers, from traditional video clip streaming to downloading and simply watching TV.

According to the report there were 2.7 million IPTV subscribers in Asia in 2006. This number is expected to soar to over 33 million by 2012.

Total revenue from consumers of IPTV content broadcasted in Asia/Pacific is expected to reach US$8 billion by 2012.

Mature markets, including Japan and Hong Kong, accounted for approximately 60% of the total Asia/Pacific subscriber population in 2006. These markets are expected to continue to lead Asia/Pacific in IPTV development.
