Broadcast sports rights
Deloitte predicts that in 2014 the value of premium sports broadcast rights worldwide will increase by 14 percent to $24.2 billion. This increase will be driven by new agreements with certain top tier European domestic football (soccer) leagues and major North American sports leagues.
State of the Media Democracy
Deloitte's State of the Media Democracy survey takes an in-depth, multi-generational look at how consumer preferences vary and are evolving within the changing landscape of device ownership, subscription services, advertising platforms, social networking adoption, and emerging payment models.
Doubling up on pay-TV
Deloitte predicts that by the end of 2014 up to 50 million homes around the world will have two or more separate pay-television subscriptions. A further ten million homes will receive premium programming as part of their subscription to another service, such as broadband.
Television’s business model
Fit for a digital world
Television appears assailed by a range of digital challengers: how is it faring in this environment?
Deloitte has researched and written this report as part of its support for the 2014 International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) Leaders’ Summit
Television appears assailed by a range of digital challengers: how is it faring in this environment? This report assesses television’s current performance and outlook given the following developments:
- Subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) providers: is the increasing reach of broadband networks disintermediating the traditional broadcaster?
- Sports: does the rise of the Internet and the abundance of sports related information available from the Web, challenge television’s primacy as the principal source of premium sports content?
- Video clips: as the most popular clips now attain ‘viewing figures’ in the billions, is short-form video content finally toppling the traditional half-hour to an hour programme length?
- Innovation: technology companies seem to dominate innovation, launching a range of headline-grabbing products. Today, few TV broadcasters have sizeable research and development departments. Can television compete in the race to innovate?
