Pay TV subscriber growth in Sub-Saharan Africa 2016-2025

By 2025, it is preducted that Vivendi will have over 7.3 million pay TV subscribers in Sub-Saharan Africa. Vivendi owns Canal Plus and Easy TV, and in 2019 had over 4.7 million paying customers on the continent. However, the leading provider remains Multichoice with over 14.5 million pay TV subscribers across satellite TV platforms DStv and DTT. StarTimes/StarSat is expected to continue to grow its subscriber base until it more closely rivals Multichoice, with estimates showing that by 2025 the difference between the two providers's subscriber numbers could be less than two million.
