Other fast growing segments will be Internet access at 11.8% and TV subscriptions and license fees at 8.6%.

Michael Paterson, a partner in PwC’s Canadian Entertainment & Media practice, comments:
“Mobile advertising is still a small market but it’s soaring in North America. Between 2010 and 2011 the segment grew by almost 149% in the U.S. and 109% in Canada,” he says. “Given the amount of time consumers are spending on their devices outside of making phone calls, it’s glaringly apparent how much of an opportunity this advertising medium is.” also notes the report also shows that the overall advertising market was healthier in Canada than the U.S. last year, growing by 5% compared to 2% in the U.S.
