Abstract:

An empirical analysis of the terrestrial television viewing patterns of subscribers and non-subscribers to pay-TV channels is presented. A logit discrete choice model is estimated using data on audience size and composition and dummy variables identifying programme types, over three two-week periods in 1996 and 1997. Although there are variations between the terrestrial TV viewing patterns of pay-TV subscribers and non-subscribers, such variations are not statistically significant. This suggests that factors other than differences in tastes may play a role in the decision to subscribe.
