Using Ovum's Operator Video Strategy Framework, this report maps the evolution of Telefonica's pay-TV and video entertainment business.


  • Telefonica's pay-TV operations have evolved from being initially an enhancement to its core telco businesses, to becoming a central component of its overall consumer proposition.
