This report is an update to the original ‘Analogue to Digital Migration’ report which was released in 2013.
A key component of the report is a detailed listing for each of the 56 countries and territories which, where available, into 4 distinct categories: “completed”, “to be completed by 2020”, “ongoing”, “no progress”.
Highlights of the research includes: 83 million households across the continent should have access to digital broadcasting by the turn of the next decade.
In-depth analysis of the major challenges that migration project teams are encountering. This includes issues around financing, the politics of the switchover, the problematic area of set top boxes and the changing content consumption habits.
- A breakdown of the digital migration process and it’s expected benefits that each country will need to both implement and, hopefully, feel. In addition to this, also included is a breakdown of the companies that are undertaking the work across the continent.
- A look at “tomorrow’s” broadcasting landscape. This offers insights on how the delays that the countries are experiencing may affect the return on their investments in a content landscape which has altered radically since the last full edition of the report was released in 2013.
