At first glance, they could be seen as unrelated companies – the upstart online video company Vimeo trying to overtake the traditional TV experience that A+E Networks does so well. But as Kerry Trainor, CEO of Vimeo and Nancy Dubuc, President & CEO, A+E Networks sat down with Re/code Senior Editor Peter Kafka at today’s INTX General Session, it became clear that they are actually in the same business. They are both trying to deliver video programming in any form that audiences want. The race they are running is for the consumption of viewers’ time, as consumers are getting flooded with more video than ever before.

When looking at the entire video marketplace, Dubuc says it’s a vibrant ecosystem. There are different places to go for different kinds of content, whether it be something short and snackable, or something long and dramatic. “People are getting very sophisticated about where to go for what,” Dubuc said. Trainor calls it the “viewer diet,” that’s evolving over time. Compared to YouTube, Vimeo has always skewed a bit longer with content. With the new Vimeo On Demand service, Trainor thinks the platform can go with even longer form TV shows, feature length films and documentaries. “We see creators breaking all the rules of price to length,” Trainor stated.

BBC Global iPlayer Subscription App Will Close on June 26

BBC Global iPlayer Subscription App Will Close on June 26 | Future of TV | Scoop.it
The subscription video-on-demand Global iPlayer is shutting down, and the iPlayer is seeing declining usage at home.
James Rivers's insight:

This report has an interesting statistic at the end with respect to the drop in iPlayer usage in the UK.  The BBC have provided data which shows that the iPlayer is experiencing trouble at home, the number of program requests, in March, to the player fell by seven percent year-over-year.

 

This was the first decline in the player's history, and calls into question the BBC's strategy of making BBC Three an online-only channel and featuring long-form content rather than shorter clips.

 

The last statement, for me, is incorrect. Yes the BBC was right to switch to an online model for BBC 3. The content and channel prestige can be risked in this, what some would say is an early adopter outline.

 

I am not sure about your viewing habitats. But as a young parent, I never watch linear television. 95% of my very limited intake is catch up/on demand. That delivery medium is likely to be iPlayer, Sky Now, All 4 etc.
