Latin America's over-the-top (OTT) and video-on-demand (VOD) market reached 10.2 million paid subscriptions by the end of 2015.

netflixDriven by Netflix, the region's most subscribed to VOD platform, the market shows a 60% annual growth rate according to published by Dataxis' NexTV LATAM, which reveals that the industry generated $640 million in revenues during 2015.

An increasing offer – there are 94 subscription VOD platforms in the region – has made OTT account for 15% of legal pay-TV subscriber figures. The report points out that penetration might be even higher, as account-sharing is a regular practice with OTT services.

Both having regional reach, they're also the strongest in LATAM's largest markets, with Netflix Mexico, Netflix Brazil and Clarovideo Mexico being the three services with the most subscribers across the region. Other local platforms, like Telecom and Telefónica in Argentina or SKY in Brazil, are also gaining importance says the report.
