Introduction

A detailed update of Libya's TV market, encompassing free-to-air and pay TV across all TV technologies, plus next-generation TV initiatives and OTT video. Includes digital terrestrial TV developments, revenue, market shares, programming, and advertising.

Highlights

  • Libyan television channels have restarted broadcasting after disappearing in the chaos and political turmoil that followed the overthrow of the previous leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. More recently, specialized channels – especially sports channels – have been launched. The ITU’s date for digital switchover (DSO) was mid-2015; however, the still-volatile political situation means the process has not yet started in Libya.
  • Ovum forecasts that Libya will have 968,000 TV households by the end of 2021. DTH will continue to dominate the pay-TV segment, mainly for the reception of pan-regional channels in the country. The growth of the pay-TV sector will continue to suffer from the success of free-to-air (FTA) DTH and from the ongoing impact of political unrest and uncertainty.
  • Efforts to address TV/video piracy can only succeed if they are spearheaded by the relevant Libyan authorities, and this can only take place if there is political stability in the country.
