Market research firm Gartner said IPTV subscriptions will grow by about 64 percent this year, amounting to 19.6 million subscribers worldwide by the end of 2008. Also, the agency forecasted worldwide IPTV revenues to reach $4.5 billion by the end of this year, which would represent growth of more than 93 percent since last year. Gartner also said global IPTV penetration could hit 2.8 percent by the end of 2012. Sounds like there is still a long way to go.
