MUMBAI: CASBAA is bringing into focus the dynamic Vietnamese multichannel TV landscape at Vietnam in View 2014, a special market forum taking place on Thursday 11 September at the Hotel de l’Opera in Hanoi.
“As the engine room of global pay-TV growth, the Asia Pacific has a number of markets with huge room for expansion – and none more so than Vietnam,” said Christopher Slaughter, CEO, CASBAA. “With over 42 per cent of the population below the age of 25 and an improving standard of living, the climate is ripe for continuing multichannel TV growth – with the right conditions.”
A country of vast potential and promise, Vietnam’s economic expansion over recent years has seen impressive growth in the country’s pay TV services, now available on cable, digital terrestrial, satellite, IPTV and mobile platforms. However, with total TV households at 20.3 million and pay-TV penetration at 61 per cent (12.4 million households), there are still opportunities for the multichannel TV industry in the country.
To shed some light on the current situation in Vietnam and what the future may hold for the broadcasting industry, CASBAA has assembled a top-tier roster of speakers representing both local and international businesses including 21st Century Fox, VTV, HTV, Dream Field Studio (HTV3), FOX International Channels, K+/VSTV, Le Media Studio, Lightning International, MyTV, Q.net, Scripps Networks International, Thao Le Entertainment, VNPayTV Association, and many others.
Starting with an in-depth market overview, the Vietnam in View 2014 programme will cover topical issues such as regulation and reform, content production, bundles and packages, intellectual property rights, monetizing OTT and more. Apart from the informative keynote speeches and panel discussions, the event will also provide ample opportunities for delegates to network and create new business connections.
