The US will contribute 28 million to the 2023 total, with India supplying 16 million. The forecasts 44 million D2C subscribers by 2023 — up from 14 million at the end of 2017 — with the US accounting for 25 million D2C subs by 2023.

In business terms, the vMVPD and D2C TV Forecasts report states that the US will supply $12.34 billion in vMVPD revenues by 2023, two-thirds of the total. The only other country to earn more than $1 billion by 2023 will be the UK.
