The IHS Markit Global Cord-Cutting Tracker identifies the markets in which traditional pay TV is declining, a trend that is in most cases the result of cord-cutting – i.e. customers of traditional pay TV services (cable, satellite, IPTV or pay DTT) cancelling their subscriptions in favour of online video alternatives.
