There will be 28 million SVOD subscriptions across 13 Arabic countries by 2029, up from 15 million in 2023, Digital TV Research revealed in its latest “Middle East and North Africa OTT TV and Video Forecasts” report.

According to Digital TV Research, Netflix will still lead the market, but local players will provide a strong challenge. StarzPlay, Shahid VIP and OSN+ will account for 46% of the Arabic total subscriptions by 2029 – collectively adding 4.7 million subscribers from 2023.

“As some of the US-based platforms lower their global rollout and local content commitments, the Arabic players will thrive,”  commented Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research.
