|IPTV Market Going Strong|
A new report from US-based Multimedia Research Group (MRG) found that 35 brand new IPTV services commenced trials or commercial operation worldwide in the past six months.
The report, entitled 'Global IPTV Market Leaders Report - March 2009', highlights continued growth in subscribers worldwide, a fact reflected by increased deployments of IPTV products in Europe, and especially North America.
The findings suggest strong opportunity in the IPTV market despite the economic downturn; however, the company also notes that the closing of Tiscali TV in Italy and the reorganisation of Nortel has left "ripples of change" throughout the industry.
