The Future of TV is Here: Content Owners Embrace Internet TV – report

This year, we have seen the adoption and launch of OTT and Internet TV services by ‘establishment’ companies traditionally dependent on pay TV for their revenue.

The likes of CBS, Viacom, NBC, Fox and HBO are now actively looking to cash in on the direct-to-consumer space.

But the land-grab for OTT viewers has exposed a complex set of challenges now facing these players in an increasingly crowded market.

The Future of TV is Here: Content Owners Embrace Internet TV


A new report The Future of TV is Here: Content Owners Embrace Internet TV addresses these issues and makes predictions about the immediate future of OTT services and cord-cutting based on trends and events over the last few months.

It’s a to-the-point executive briefing and, among other topics, readers will learn:

  • Why the preferences and habits of the “millennial viewer” are influencing the OTT landscape and niche areas;
  • How every media company needs a mobile-first strategy to exploit the trend for on-demand viewing;
  • About the rise of MCNs (Multi-Channel Networks) and how they fit into the YouTube eco-system;
  • Why aggregation and curation methods are being pursued to win over subscription bundling;
  • About OTT projects from content owners like Disney, Viacom, Scripps and categories like kids TV and sports TV segments;
  • What are the commercial opportunities presented by SVoD (Subscription Video-on-Demand) services.


The report is based on three catalysts that have spurred the internet TV explosion and brought a new level of consumer choice:

  • The secular shift to on-demand viewing;
  • More contraction in the pay TV market (albeit less than 1% in Q1 2015);
  • New web-based entrants now competing for viewers and subscription revenue.


The Future of TV is Here: Content Owners Embrace Internet TV is a 31-page study and is essential reading for decision makers and influencers in Pay-TV companies including Cable, Satellite and Telcos, Movie and TV Studios, TV networks, TV and Device Manufacturers, Makers of Set-Top Boxes, Home Networking Gear, Infrastructure that delivers video to the home, Local TV Stations, Financial Analysts and Industry Consultants.
