Digital Media OTT Market Update – Spring 2020

As a consequence of the outbreak, many people are now finding themselves confined to their homes and spending more time watching TV on a variety of screens. In particular, in the absence of live sports, consumers are likely to flock to local news and streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+. It is against this backdrop that we would like to share our perspectives on the over-the-top (OTT) industry with you.

We have included industry insights and recent strategic developments to help you stay ahead in this fast-moving, dynamic, and constantly evolving sector. Driven by rapidly growing levels of consumer consumption and evolving business models, M&A activity and investments in new OTT platforms continue to transform the competitive industry landscape. We expect activity to remain high for the foreseeable future, even in this volatile market environment, as the sector continues its rapid growth trajectory and the key players refine their operating strategies, in particular with the emergence of ad-based video on demand (AVOD).

We hope you find this update to be informative and that it serves as a valuable resource to you in staying abreast of the market in these turbulent times. Of course, in this fast changing market environment, we would be happy to discuss these developments in real time and look forward to staying in touch with you.
