Together with Julie Mitchelmore of A+E Networks, Peter Docherty of ThinkAnalytics and Richard Cooper of Ampere Analysis, we discussed the huge rise in TV and OTT viewing since the COVID-19 national lockdowns started. We also talked about the content that’s being watched, the people that are watching it, how titles are presented and surfaced to audiences, the number of SVODs per household and the sustainability of this level of TV viewing.
During the session we referred to:
- The Tivo Video Trends Report about the average number of SVODs that households in the US subscribe to
- Synamedia and piracy – see section 2 of this piece
- Disney Plus already has 50m subscribers in five months
