A detailed update of Australia’s TV market, encompassing free-to-air and pay-TV across all TV technologies, plus OTT video and regulation changes. Includes TV ratings, revenues, market shares, programming, and advertising.


  • The number of pay-TV subscribers is growing slowly, and the addressable market has become fairly saturated. Ovum forecasts pay-TV penetration will increase from 30% at the end of 2015 to 31% by the end of 2021.
  • Pay-TV operators are looking at low-cost options in order to attract subscribers who might not pay A$80–A$100 for a pay-TV service, but are willing to sign up if cheaper options are available.
  • With an objective of finding additional ways to reach subscribers, SVOD providers are adding support for smart TV, gaming consoles, tablets, and smartphones. Presto, for instance, has extended access to Android TV devices, Telstra TV, and Fetch TV, as well as added support for AirPlay.
