Cable Networks in the US

Cable operators are at the core of the cable TV revolution, supplying popular family shows, news, movies, sports, documentaries and other products to a growing swarm of eager subscribers. Consumers are increasingly willing to pay for entertainment that suits their interests. Over the next five years, cable distributors will demand more programming and new digital and high-definition (HD) channels from networks as they strive to maintain subscriber growth and interest. The industry will benefit from falling unemployment and increasing disposable income over the five years to 2020, resulting in revenue growth from improving contracts with distributors.

This industry operates studios and facilities and distributes TV programs on a subscription or fee basis through cable providers and other platforms. Industry operators include specialty TV cable networks and pay-per-view programming. Programming production and satellite broadcasters are excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
