The emergence of the Video on Demand (VOD) market in recent years has changed the global TV and content landscape in an unprecedented fashion. Beginning with the launch of a handful of subscription services some 15-20 years ago, the market has now exploded with nearly 1000 new VOD services launching globally in the last 4 years. While this has no doubt created a glut of opportunities for content owners and distributors, it’s also a rapidly changing landscape that can be hard to navigate and build new contacts and relationships in, involving a myriad of everchanging deal models and rights definitions.
For this reason we wanted to put together a report to try and give you, the content producers, some key insights into the numbers and opportunities, and also in depth interviews and analysis of some of the new and emerging players. We’ve even included a handy glossary of terms to help you try and navigate this brave new world. There have never been more places to sell both original and completed shows, whether it be to linear, SVOD, AVOD or beyond, and the “all or nothing” linear TV sale is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Good content can and should generate a solid ongoing revenue stream if managed well on the right services. We hope this report goes some way to helping you to navigate these ever changing opportunitiesDownload
