Research conducted by Telecompaper shows that the Dutch TV and video market is growing strongly. Revenues in the second quarter for pay-TV services amounted to €556 million, up 7.2 per cent from a year earlier, buoyed by new OTT providers expanding their presence in the market.
The average digital TV package in the Netherlands has grown to 46 channels.
Since Netflix launched in the country in 2013, broadband companies have been growing their share of consumer TV budgets. SVoD providers already account for 16 per cent of consumer spending on Dutch and video services, up from 11 per cent a year ago.
