The definitive multi-screen market tracking and forecasting service


World TV Information Service provided the most complete multi-screen market tracking and forecasting tool available, covering traditional TV, OTT video, broadband and devices. Now replaced by Ovum's new Forecaster service which combines WTVIS's unrivalled TV, OTT video and fixed-line coverage for cellular markets across the globe.

Forecaster's TV and video coverage encompasses metrics for 161 countries, in both advanced and emerging markets, including unrivalled coverage of growth markets in Africa.

Five year forecasts are included for TV, OTT video, devices and broadband and historical TV Operator subscriptions by quarter for 700 TV operators in 149 markets from the year 2000.

Designed to help content owners, vendors and service providers succeed in a multi-screen world, Forecaster provides them with the data they need to optimize their multiscreen strategies across both traditional and OTT channels in different markets.
