Minimal movement in ranking between 2008 and 2009
In 2009, MII China group continued to have the largest subscriber base worldwide followed by Verizon, France Telecom and AT&T. These top-4 companies have remained in their positions since 2008 as their subscriber bases are clearly far ahead of the rest of the pack. As a group, the top-4 recorded over 12.8m IPTV sub- scriptions in 2009 representing 67% of the total top-10 base.
Note: The top-10 IPTV ranking is based on proportionate subscribers, i.e. participations over 50% are fully consolidated while participations below 50% subscribers are added proportionately to the participation level.
