FY-2015: Indian cable industry - long haul work in progress
cable industry in India has made a remarkable amount of progress in
implementing DAS in phase I and phase II considering the weak balance

before they actually start making profits. However, the promise of
addressability, greater transparency and higher average revenue per user
(ARPU) is yet to be realized by the cable industry.

global pay-TV services market, including cable TV, satellite TV, telco
TV and OTT video, totaled $237 billion in 2014, up 7% from the previous
year, according to the 2015 IHS Infonetics Pay - TV Services and
