According to new data from the Global Communications Market, revenues from the UK TV industry amount to £172 per person from all revenue streams. Of that amount, the breakdown per person works out to £71 from subscription services and £58 from advertising sources. The remainder of the income per person comes from public funding.

According to the research that shows that revenues for subscription TV is quickly catching up with revenue for ad sources like commercials. More broadcasters are also moving online with BBC announcing that starting next week its channels will be available live online.

This is interesting and I for one would like to see how this pans out. Imagine if subscription revenues overtake ad revenues. Perhaps we could be offered the chance to subscribe to commercial free feeds from broadcast networks. I would certainly be interested in that.
