Facebook set to ‘take on’ YouTube’s video dominance

Facebook set to ‘take on’ YouTube’s video dominance | Newer Media | Scoop.it
Facebook is making a “serious play” for content owners and looks poised to take on YouTube’s dominance in video content, according to a new research report. 

Ampere Analysis said that Facebook’s video views are “rocketing” and that recent trials with content owners like NFL and Fox Sports “suggest it’s primed to become a plausible alternative to YouTube.”

The report claims that Facebook’s video views are “catching up” with YouTube’s and will exceed two trillion this year – two thirds of YouTube’s projected total for the same period.

Ampere said it expects Facebook to trigger an “advertising ‘arms race’” by competing directly against YouTube for user-uploaded video audiences and predicted that it would start to introduce pre-roll ads on some of its video content to improve revenue-return for key content partners.

“As Facebook moves from testing its advertising models to more actively soliciting content creators to join the platform, it will come under increased pressure to match the opportunities and per view returns generated by other platforms – notably YouTube,” said Ampere research director and former IHS analyst, Richard Broughton.

“Ultimately, despite Facebook’s current reticence around offering pre-rolls, it may have to bite the bullet and add them to its repertoire. If the social network’s own video ambitions are to be realised, and if it is to convince content owners it is a viable alternative to YouTube, it must deliver comparable returns.”

According to Ampere estimates, almost 15% of internet users across Western Europe and the US have watched videos on Facebook in the last month, while a sixth of Facebook video viewers have not watched YouTube in the same time period.

At its F8 developer conference earlier this year, Facebook said it would now let viewers watch and interact with Facebook videos from anywhere on the web, with the launch of its new embedded video player. At the same time the social network previewed an “immersive, 360-degree video experience” in the service’s news feed that lets viewers choose the viewing angle to explore your surroundings.

Earlier this year, Facebook reported an increasing shift towards visual content, claiming that in the past year the number of video posts per person has increased 75% globally and 94% in the US. Since June 2014, Facebook claims it has averaged more than one billion video views every day.

Netflix and YouTube account for majority of web traffic

Netflix and YouTube account for majority of web traffic | Newer Media | Scoop.it

Netflix and YouTube now account for more than 50% of downstream traffic on fixed networks in North America, according to a new research by broadband network solutions firm Sandvine.

The Global Internet Phenomena Report 2H2013 claims that Netflix now accounts for 31.6% of downstream traffic in North America, with YouTube accounting for 18.6%.

In the UK, Netflix is responsible for more than 20% of traffic – less than two years on from the VoD service’s launch there. By comparison, in the US, it took the firm almost four years to achieve the same traffic, the study found.

The report also said that peer-to-peer (P2P) filesharing had fallen below 10% of total traffic in North America “for the first time ever.”

“Since 2009 on-demand entertainment has consumed more bandwidth than ‘experience later’ applications like peer-to-peer filesharing and we had projected it would inevitably dip below 10% of total traffic by 2015. It’s happened much faster,” said Sandvine CEO Dave Caputo.

Five years ago, P2P filesharing accounted for more than 31% of web traffic in North America. Eleven years ago it was 60%, according to Sandvine’s stats.

Meanwhile, the report also tipped video traffic on mobile networks in Africa to grow “faster than in any other region before it,” despite only currently accounting for less than 6% of traffic.

“The African market is especially unique, as most users are connecting to the internet for the first time through mobile devices,” said Caputo. “In other parts of the world, new users have first connected to the internet via a fixed line. While video is a small part of mobile bandwidth in the region today, we predict Africa will be the fastest video adopter and operators will respond with creative device-and application-based service tiers.”

Global video and TV market to reach €483 billion by 2017

Global video and TV market to reach €483 billion by 2017 | Newer Media | Scoop.it

Worldwide video and television revenues will grow from €392 billion in 2012 to €483 billion in 2017, according to France-based research group IDATE.

According to IDATE’s latest World TV & New Video Services Market study, pay TV revenue will grow by 22.7% between 2012-17 to reach €210.2 billion, representing an average annual growth rate of 4.2%. Advertising revenue will see even stronger growth, according to the group, rising by 25.8% to reach €191.4 billion. The group estimates that public service broadcasting licence fee income will grow by about 7.5% to reach €37 billion.

In terms of the mix of services, linear TV will continue to generate 91% of income, according to IDATE. Video-on-demand will represent 7% of the total video market by 2017, with physical format video representing 2.1%. Total VOD revenues will amount to €34 billion, with OTT services representing 74% of the total. Within managed networks, transactional VOD will predominate, turning over €6.6 billion in revenues compared with €2.2 billion for SVOD, according to IDATE. Physical format video sales, mostly Blu-ray, will deliver revenues of €10.3 billion by 2017.

According to IDATE, TV households will reach 1.647 billion by 2017, up 9.9% on the 2012 figure, with digital homes representing 87.6% of the total.

Cable will remain the dominant distribution choice, with 571.7 million homes, but satellite and IPTV will gain ground, representing 32.4% and 8.5% of total households respectively by 2017. Terrestrial TV will decline to number three spot with a 24.4% share, according to the research group.

Ericsson in Talks to Buy Microsoft's Internet Television Division

Ericsson in Talks to Buy Microsoft's Internet Television Division | Newer Media | Scoop.it

Ericsson is reported to be in talks to buy Microsoft's IPTV business division, MediaRoom with a deal expected to be announced within the next few weeks.

Citing several people with knowledge of the talks, Bloomberg Newsreported that the move will help Ericsson step up its emphasis on software and services amid accelerating competition in hardware.

The purchase would also bolster Ericsson's relations with several telecoms networks, such as AT&T who use the Microsoft platform for their U-Verse service.

Microsoft is said to be looking at the sale as it focuses attention on delivering TV services through its Xbox games console.
