Within the Asian landscape, India with its 1.3 billion people has always been unique. After years of becoming one of the world’s most important pay-TV markets, a new revolution is underway.

Heritage and Evolution

AVIA has evolved from CASBAA, which was established in 1991 at the birth of the pay TV industry in Asia; a time when video was primarily distributed and received through cable and satellite. Today, the video industry has evolved and while linear pay TV, cable operators and satellite providers are still a big and important part of the industry, it equally encompasses all those who produce, curate and distribute video content in whatever format, to whatever device, and the entire ecosystem that surrounds the video industry.
