Set-top boxes Benchmarking Report

This international comparison of simple and complex set top boxes from April 2014 highlights the variation in product type and functionality available across each country/region studied, which is driven by differences in the television service markets. The significant differences in product mix mean that the traditional benchmarking of product performance, comparing national market averages, has not been possible. Whilst some performance characteristics of the individual datasets are included, the analysis focuses more on the polices in place in each of the markets.
