vMVPD Scorecard, February 2018

The vMVPD (virtual MVPD, or web-delivered pay TV) market is booming and we expect that this is the year it will really take off as consumers discover that vMVPD “mesomorph bundles”– around 100 channels for $45/month– are the perfect fit and give them pretty much everything they want to watch.

Here’s the scorecard so far, along with month launched. (All numbers are estimates as no one actually releases subscriber stats!)
