Pay TV plus online SVOD is about to become commonplace | ConnectedTV | Scoop.it

We reported previously on the growing evidence that online SVOD services are not eroding Pay TV subscriptions and may in fact be complementary to Pay TV in many homes. Now Deloitte, the consulting firm, has predicted that between 1 million and 1.5 million homes in the UK will subscribe to at least two Pay TV services by the middle of 2014.

VideobeuZ's curator insight, January 15, 11:53 PM

La tendance se confirme : comme en 84 pour Canal+ et malgré une offre aujourd'hui plus qu'abondante, les consommateurs sont prêts à mettre la main au portefeuille pour leurs programmes TV. Les modèles à quelques euros seront les plus convaincants.

Mattia Nicoletti's curator insight, January 11, 2:41 AM

What is amazing in the evolution of things is that it impacts on every level. If Binge viewing will really become the new normal it will impact in a strong way on contents writing. The drama arcs in every episode and the cliffhangers will not be based anymore on single episodes and even episodes shall be longer or shorter. Then who will offer VOD services is going to think how to fill the time that lasts between 2 seasons (they are likely to divide one season in 2 parts as happens now with cable tv series). 


Binge viewing, as social tv and second screen are changing more than one world and 2014 can be a year where change will be the key.
