The 20,000 Foot View: With a third of Canadians subscribing to traditional pay-TV, the country has a strong appetite for online video. This is demonstrated by the            of the population who are now Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) subscribers. With the SVOD market already more than two thirds the size of the traditional pay-TV market, Canada is a litmus test for whether traditional pay-TV is able to co-exist with SVOD.  So far there the evidence indicates that the historically strong cable and satellite sector is slowly losing market share to the SVOD disruptors.
