May 27, 2020 – SES has revealed the results of its first-ever TV market reception survey in the Philippines. Out of the 3,000 residential households interviewed across the Philippines, SES unveiled that households who subscribed to satellite TV ranked highest in terms of satisfaction with their TV service. A large majority of satellite TV households were very satisfied with their TV service (76%), in comparison with cable TV (70%), digital terrestrial (69%), analogue terrestrial (59%) and IPTV (54%) respectively. Satellite TV (17%) is also the second-most popular mode of TV reception in the Philippines, behind terrestrial TV (66%) but ahead of cable TV (15%) and IPTV (2%), according to the SES Satellite Monitor report. The Philippines stands as one of the most dynamic and highly-penetrated TV markets in Asia Pacific with over 20.8 million TV households and 86.8% TV penetration rate. The research further highlighted the importance of image quality and viewing experience for Filipino households, with 99.6% of those surveyed indicating it as important or very important. Yet while 57% or 12 million households in the country already own HDTV screens, only about 13% of TV channels are broadcast in HD quality.
