DTV set to explode in Europe

Digital television services, including TV, Internet access and telephony, will dominate Europe’s digital economy by the end of the decade with 60 percent of households connected, according to a new study by Reuters.

Predictions are that more than $122 billion in related investments, including more than 100,000 new jobs, are expected from next-generation television services. The findings came from strategy and technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton.

Based on market data and interviews with industry participants, the study said that digital services will shift away from services focused on broadband access toward comprehensive communication and entertainment services centered on digital TV that also delivers Internet and telephone calls.
