A new report forecasts explosive growth in the number of pay TV households in the Asia-Pacific region with revenues expected to jump by $12B in the next five years. The conversion from analog TV to digital is a major source of the revenue potential in nations such as the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam. What to watch: Though edging into China could be tricky, content players such as HBO (TWX), AMC Networks (AMCX), and Disney (DIS) could see a boost while the trend also has interesting implications for Netflix (NFLX).

    One way to invest in the explosive growth in pay TV households in China is via Nasdaq's YOU on Demand (YOD). The US-based Company is the first national PPV (Pay-Per-View) and VOD (Video on Demand) platform in China, featuring Transactional (TVOD) and Subscription (SVOD) services. They have secured Chinese government approval (via a long-term license from China Home Cinema - CHC), content (from leading Hollywood Studios and China-produced titles) and distribution via Cable MSOs (regional providers) in China.
