Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. Into 2005, Japanese cable TV operators such as J-COM (which held its IPO in March 2005) are actively pushing triple-play services that include TV, voice telephone and broadband Internet access. In Japan’s cable TV industry, many of the small and medium-sized operators have already been swallowed up by the larger ones and some of the larger ones have themselves become targets for acquisition. In an unusual turn of events, satellite DTH broadcaster Sky Perfect entered the cable TV arena via its subsidiary Opticast. This report examines the Japanese cable television industry and addresses the use of cable for triple-play models.
