TRADITIONAL BROADCASTERS COULD LOSE OUT TO DIGITAL GIANTS

September 2017 | The Guardian Media

Does UK TV industry risk losing £1bn a year to Amazon, YouTube and Facebook?

Broadcasters like the BBC, ITV and Sky could lose a combined £1bn every year if similar services from Amazon, Facebook and YouTube become big players in the TV industry over the next decade.

A new report by OC&C Strategy Consultants suggests that broadcasters in the UK could suffer the same fate as industries including music and news where powerful digital newcomers including Apple, Google and YouTube have worked their way in to take a significant share of revenues.

The report argues that broadcasting could be controlled by one or two content producers that would act as viewing platforms for consumers looking for a simple way to access a vast array of content. 

Today's viewers already have a range of options to choose from, with the BBC iPlayer and Amazon Prime among the platforms competing for the attention of households. Over 20% of under-35s use more than seven services to keep up with their favourite shows and 40% say they are becoming confused by how many options are available, according to the survey.
