The existing studies aiming to quantify the magnitude and economic impact of illegal IPTV coherently report on the rising trend of unauthorised IPTV proliferation in global markets. This report has been carried out to estimate the number of individuals involved in consumption of unauthorised IPTV as well as to assess the potential revenue generated by copyright infringing IPTV providers. Quantitative estimation is based on official and harmonised data sources in order to ensure full comparability of the reported estimates among the EU Member States. Official Eurostat household survey data was applied when possible.
