YouTube: The Next Generation of TV – report

As content consumption in linear TV declines (a 9% drop in viewers in the second quarter of 2015 alone)…

 … and pay TV companies start experimenting with OTT business models and alternative revenue streams, the hard fact is YouTube gets 240 billion views a month.

A new report called YouTube: The Next Generation of TV examines recent trends of YouTube in the last few months and outlines its impact on the wider video delivery eco-system.

Watch-time for YouTube content is up 60% over the last year, as declared in Google’s Q2 2015 earnings report. The video platform easily reaches more 18-49 year old viewers than any pay TV network in the world.

And there is no indication of YouTube’s growth slowing down.

Published by Rider Research, over 36 pages, YouTube: The Next Generation of TV pulls together recent studies, figures and in-depth research taken from the digital media strategy bulletin The Online Reporter.

 It analyzes the reasons for YouTube’s recent expansion and focuses on such aspects of the business as MCNs (multi-channel networks), Millennial viewing trends, content delivery models within YouTube and opportunities for content aggregrators.

As well as offering key analysis of the business model, YouTube: The Next Generation of TV, readers will learn:

1)    How MCNs (Multi-Channel Networks) such as StyleHaul, Collective and Makers and have evolved as the “powerhouses” of entertainment content;

2)    What to expect in the next 12-18 months as video challengers like Facebook and Vessel are taking advertising slices out of the YouTube pie;

3)    How content aggregators and broadband providers are finding innovative ways to use YouTube to enhance their offerings with case-studies from US companies like Comcast, Verizon & Dish;

4)    Why the price drop in UHD 4K TV sets could be a further boost for YouTube traffic.
