Satellite, Cable and Broadcasting
Propelled by digitization, the Internet and regulatory changes, Asian satellite, cable and broadcasting companies are converging their businesses and how they view markets and opportunities. As new broadband satellite and cable systems are deployed in Asia, Internet access, data and video convergence and interactivity, will create new businesses where none existed before. These forces are turning broadcasters into Internet companies, and Internet companies into broadcasters, with both of these newly converged industries offering telecommunications and other enhanced services.
