SVoD viewing to overtake traditional TV from 2023

By Broadband TV News Correspondent

SVoD uptake is accelerating and in terms of hours viewing per day it will shortly draw level with broadcast TV globally by 2023, according to Rethink Reserach.

This global forecast shows the stark contrast between the heavily AVoD Asia compared to the SVoD frenzy going on in the US and Europe. The US market will rise from a combined paid SVoD (including vMVPD) and reach 236.6 million subscriptions by the end of 2023, from a base today of some 146.5 million.

Europe and Asia will be neck and neck in SVoD revenues by 2023, but with far fewer subscribers in Europe, each paying significantly more than those in Asia, a region dominated by frighteningly large Advertising VoD streaming numbers.

Netflix will continue to lead in SVoD in both subscribers numbers (outside of China), but will make up 194 million SVoD customers out of 743 million globally by 2023, some 26% of total global subscribers. In the US Netflix today represents 44% of subscriptions, but will only be 31% of the increased US subscription levels by 2023.

One of the new leaders to emerge from the battle for the US market will be WarnerMedia, under its new AT&T defined, freemium strategy reaching 29.6 million SVoD homes by 2023. Disney is also likely to have multiple SVoD service types, but is likely to struggle outside the US.

Europe will be a mishmash of different approaches with pure play US operators like Netflix and Amazon now established, US studios beginning to stake a claim, and local broadcasters ganging up to challenge them, while the region has its own pure play SVoD players also such as Maxdome, Sky, Zattoo, and Rakuten TV.

The Asia Pacific market is highly skewed with China expected to amass 245 million SVoD subscribers, some 72% of the total region, but the average spend will be just $2 to $3 a month. Latin American is a three horse race between the leader Netflix, America Movil’s Claro TV and Televisa’s Blim, with US studios looking to play King maker there.

Brexit: Discovery receives German licences

By JΓΆrn Krieger

Bavarian media authority BLM has granted Discovery Communications Deutschland broadcast licences for 19 TV channels targeting Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Discovery also received a licence for the pan-European distribution of its new streaming service Golf TV.

The Scandinavian channels are the following channels (not available in Germany):
Denmark: Channel 4 HD, Channel 5, 6’eren, Canal 9, Eurosport 2, Discovery Channel HD, TLC
Sweden: Channel 5, Channel 9, Channel 11, Discovery Channel, TLC HD
Norway: MAX, FEM, VOX, Eurosport Norge, Discovery Channel HD, TLC
Finland: Discovery Channel

Golf TV, a channel for golf fans, will be offered via OTT as a live-stream throughout Europe including Germany.

Since licenses issued by UK-based media authority Ofcom cannot be a legal basis for a European distribution anymore with the impending withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (Brexit), Discovery wants to expand its existing location in Munich and applied for new licenses for the Scandinavian channels at BLM.

Despite all these channels – with the exception of Golf TV – not broadcasting in Germany, but in other EU member states and Norway (member of the European Free Trade Association), the Bavarian media authority is responsible: Discovery’s head office is in Munich and editorial decisions are also made in the Bavarian Capital. The company also plans to create new jobs in Munich when it starts operations under German licence, especially in the area of youth protection, according to BLM.

“The new licences mean a further strengthening of Bavaria as a media location for us. For the companies they mean legal security,” said BLM president Siegfried Schneider.
