Multi-Screen Content Licensing Still a Major Headache for Pay TV Operators, Infonetics Survey Shows

CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its new Multi-Screen TV Service Deployment Strategies: Global Service Provider Survey, for which Infonetics (News - Alert) interviewed pay TV operators about their plans for multi-screen video services and delivering live and file-based video content to subscribers with multiple devices.

ANALYST NOTE

"Multi-screen services are quickly becoming a critical service for pay TV operators worldwide," notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "By keeping attention focused on the content they're providing, operators keep subscribers and advertisers happy."

"But," cautions Julien Blin, Infonetics' directing analyst for consumer electronics and mobile broadband, "Significant challenges remain, particularly when it comes to securing licensing arrangements with content owners who are concerned about the security of their content in a multi-screen world. This is also one of the major hurdles to offering รก la carte cable content, a hot topic these days."

MULTISCREEN TV SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nearly half of survey respondents support tablets as part of their multi-screen service today, growing to 100% by 2014
  • When it comes to supporting mobile OS as part of a multi-screen service, 40% of operators interviewed prefer the Android (News - Alert) and iOS platforms
  • Among survey respondents, the need to reduce churn and increase customer loyalty was rated a top business driver
  • Securing content licensing deals is the #1 business challenge facing respondent operators

SURVEY SYNOPSIS

For its 24-page multi-screen TV survey, Infonetics interviewed purchase-decision makers at incumbent and cable operators from EMEA, North America, and Asia Pacific in November and December 2012 about their plans for delivering multi-screen video. The study provides insights into business drivers and challenges, technological challenges, types of devices and mobile operating systems supported, transcoding and delivery methods, number of broadcast channels and VOD titles offered, and value-added services.
