Media Execs See OTT Video as Supplementing – Not Replacing – Pay TV

StreamingMedia-OTT-Challenge-to-Pay-TV-Sept2013Media industry executives feel that over-the-top (OTT) video services such as Netflix are more likely to lead to cord-shaving than cord-cutting behavior, according to [download page] a recent report from StreamingMedia.com. Among the 758 executives surveyed, 51% said they believe that consumers are responding to the emergence of pure OTT video services by cutting back on their pay-TV channel packages and supplementing them with OTT content. By comparison, 23% feel that consumers are responding by canceling their traditional pay-TV subscriptions in favor of OTT video.

Netflix subscribers themselves appear to hew more closely to the former view, at least when it comes to content consumption. Last year, a GfK study found Netflix users saying that their regular TV content consumption was unaffected by their subscription. In a more recent study, GfK discovered that a majority of Netflix users said that they watch less premium cable as a result of their subscription.

Interestingly, the StreamingMedia.com study finds that pay-TV operators are far less likely to believe that consumers will cut the cord due to the emergence of OTT video. Just 5% of pay-TV operators responding to the survey believe that’s the case, compared to 22% of technology vendors and 25% of content providers. Instead, pay-TV operators are more likely to believe that consumers are responding to OTT video by cutting back on channel packages.

drag2share: Why The $130 Billion Deal For Verizon Wireless Is Key To Verizon’s Fight For The Future Of Mobile And Media

source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/businessinsider/~3/cORDms6-N3I/verizon-wireless-and-mobiles-future-2013-9

CarrierDataRevenueData revenues: Another way to drive revenue growth is to encourage customers to consume large amounts of wireless data, by playing games and watching videos, and paying for it on their mobile bills. Telecommunications’ future will be won by the company that can foster a new culture of heavy data consumption and build the best 4G infrastructure to support it. It’s an expensive, risky game. Only the largest, most disciplined companies will win it.

Mobile video has begun to accumulate scale, and has also turned out to be one of the few types of mobile content — along with games — that monetizes reliably and drives premium ad rates.

That’s reflected in the much higher prices that mobile publishers can command for mobile video ads, compared to standard mobile formats like banners. eMarketer estimates mobile video will account for $520 million in ad spending in the U.S. this year, or 13% of the digital video ad market.

drag2share: Users Dont Pay to Download They Just Stream

source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/businessinsider/~3/TMIC3t2MfKY/how-business-insider-employees-listen-to-music-2013-8

Paying to download: End of an era?

The advent of the iPod, and with it iTunes, is generally credited with ushering in a new era of music consumption, as well as pulling the music industry out of its Napster-induced tailspin.

But our survey suggests that era may already be waning: the majority of BI’ers say they hardly ever, or never, pay to download music anymore.

More News Reading Goes Mobile – eMarketer

source: http://www.emarketer.com/Article/More-News-Reading-Goes-Mobile/1010123

More than one in 10 print news subscribers to cancel their subscription in the next year

A substantial percentage of smartphone and tablet users consumed news on their devices in Q1 2013, according to polling by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute. The 35-to-44 age group showed the highest incidence of reading news on their smartphones, at 73% of users. But penetration rates for every other adult age group except those 65 and older were above 60%. Among the oldest smartphone users, the small screen size seemed to turn them off to news consumption; only 35% read the news on their phone.

Among tablet users, the figures were similar, with the percentage between 25 to 64 years old reading news on the devices hovering around 67%. Interestingly, those 65 and over were much more likely to read on the tablet compared with the smartphone, at 59%; bigger font seems to translate to older readership.

Americans Are Watching More Online Video Ads Than Ever Before

source: http://www.marketingcharts.com/wp/interactive/americans-are-watching-more-online-video-ads-than-ever-before-35154/?utm_campaign=rssfeed&utm_source=mc&utm_medium=textlink

comScore-Online-Video-Ad-Views-June2013Americans’ consumption of online video ads has been on a record-breaking tear over the past couple of months, per comScore Video Metrix data. In June, online video ad views reached a new peak of 20.1 billion, a dramatic 27% jump from the previous high of 15.8 billion just a month earlier, and making April’s record of 13.3 billion views seem like a distant memory. So what’s fueling all these extra ad views? Surprisingly, online video ad reach has grown only incrementally. Instead, the growth in views is almost all the result of a big increase in the number of ads each viewer is seeing.
