2020 Media and Entertainment Industry Outlook

Video streaming and digital media industry trends to watch

As the streaming wars intensify, can consumers expect to see more diverse on-demand options in the year ahead? Kevin Westcott, Deloitte’s US leader of telecommunications, media, and entertainment, explores the biggest media trends for 2020—from content re-aggregation and ad-supported video to esports and 5G.

What to watch: The streaming wars

As major networks and studios continue to launch their own direct-to-consumer streaming services in 2020, competitors will likely scramble to offer content libraries broad enough to both attract and retain customers. According to Kevin Westcott, vice chairman and Deloitte's US telecommunications, media, and entertainment leader, Deloitte LLP, this creates opportunities for media, and entertainment firms to "re-aggregate" their content libraries with a wide array of offerings—from video, music, and gaming services to ad-supported content.
