Telco/IPTV subscribers to total almost 40 million households worldwide in 2009

I’ve long argued that Apple should release a home server, along with a seriously updated Apple TV. And the clock is ticking as number of subscribers worldwide to telco/IPTV services will approach 40 million by year-end 2009, according to international research firm Parks Associates.

“Telco/IPTV services are a core part of successful digital home strategies, but the appeal of these services is strongest when they are part of a complete service package,” says Kurt Scherf, vice president, principal analyst, Parks Associates. “To edge out incumbent pay-TV providers, telecom operators must move beyond the ‘killer app’ mentality and be holistic in their approach.”

Parks Associates reports the number of telco/IPTV households worldwide grew by nearly 80 percent in 2008 to exceed 20 million. The growth rate will exceed 50 percent in 2009.
