Outlook on the TV & Video Market in Europe, 2023: Indicators by Country, Consumption Indicators, Access Indicators & Revenue Indicators

Dublin, Nov. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The TV & Video Market in Europe" report has been added to's offering.

Europe's TV and video market is going the way of the North American market:

  • Declining TV viewing time and TV household numbers;
  • Pay-TV revenue that is starting to shrink as OTT services continue to attract more and more customers, and drive down prices;
  • A booming SVOD market, controlled by a handful of American heavyweights.

The fault lines are growing between Western and northern Europe on the one side, and Eastern and southern Europe on the other:

  • Countries in the west and north of Europe are well into the transition that aligns them with TV viewing trends in the US;
  • While the TV market in countries in the east and south of Europe are still playing catch up;
  • Which explains why the two blocs are having opposite growth trajectories: one is on the decline while the other is still enjoying steady growth.

Within this unstable environment, questions remain over the future of Europe's broadcasters and media companies:

  • Faced with the American threat, national and pan-regional alliances are starting to form in Europe;
  • Co-financed OTT and content platforms are thus starting to emerge, hoping to withstand the American onslaught;
  • But their ability to compete with the massive brand name clout of their US counterparts has yet to be proven.
