“To see growth of 49% in subscription revenue in the first quarter of 2021 is staggering – in comparison, we saw a slight 4% increase in first three months of 2019 – and a clear sign that the industry may be building back stronger following the impact of the pandemic.“

(Dan Ison, Deloitte's lead partner for telecommunications, media and entertainment)


  • Confidence remains "understandably high"

  • There is a "general expectation that the broader economic recovery will lift all boats as the pandemic tide recedes."


"The rapid increase in digital revenues across almost all categories is extremely heartening, especially after the lows of last year. While there are clearly still long-term impacts of the pandemic it’s great to see the exceptional value and quality environments digital publishers can deliver is being recognised by the industry, demonstrated by the incredible performance in Q1 2021."
