Romania Heading for 100% Pay TV Penetration

Romania will end 2017 with “effectively 100% pay-TV penetration” according to Broadband TV News’ Chris Dziadul.

Dziadul cites data from Ancom, which shows that Romania was already on 98% at the end of June, up from 95.6% in 2016 and 91.2% in 2015. The number of homes using direct-to-home (DTH) services is also falling, down to 2.35 million, a 3% decline from 2016.

Meanwhile, the number of pay-TV subscribers has reportedly increased by 3%, up to 4.6 million.
