Over a third of homes with televisions in Sub-Saharan Africa accessed digital signal by the end of 2012, a report has found.
The publication, Digital TV Sub-Saharan Africa predicts that DTV penetration in the region will skyrocket to 95.5% by 2018.
The report’s author, Simon Murray, of Digital TV Research said in Broadband TV News: “Even we have been surprised by the pace of change and progress in the region’s television market in the year since the last edition of this report. These are exciting times for Sub-Saharan Africa.”
Published this week, the report claims to be the most comprehensive ever to be published on the region’s TV market, covering 42 countries.
