SVOD Is the Clear OTT Winner

Amazon Prime Instant Video’s expansion and the introduction of BritBox drive home the point: SVOD will be the leading OTT business model for the foreseeable future. Amazon’s global launch of Prime Video and the announcement by UK broadcasters BBC and ITV of a U.S. launch for a new streaming service BritBox should seal the deal for subscription on demand. SVOD has won. “In retrospewww.streamingmediaglobal.comct, if you were starting out a few years ago pushing video OTT then it is blindingly obvious that SVOD would be the most successful online video model,” says Ovum senior analyst Tony Gunnarsson. It is still early days, but the world has already been sliced up between the all-powerful Netflix and a handful of local or regional competitors. Multiple pay-TV OTT initiatives around the world indicate that OTT video is becoming increasingly core to service providers’ product portfolios. The Q1 2017 launch of BritBox is one example. The venture pairs BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, with commercial network ITV and U.S. network AMC (which partners with the BBC for cable channel BBC America). BritBox will offer a collection of British content including dramas that have long been unavailable in the U.S. such […]

Quick Take: Amazon Music Unlimited Comes To The UK

Amazon announced the anticipated launch of Amazon Music Unlimited in the UK today. For my full take on Amazon Music Unlimited see my previous post here. Make no mistake, Amazon are taking this launch seriously, with a coordinated PR campaign and press release quotes not only from Amazon’s head of streaming music Steve Boom but also from Jeff Bezos himself. So why the big deal? Music is a low revenue, low margin business for Amazon, just as it is for Google and Apple. But that’s not the point. Music always plays a special role for tech companies, sometimes because the CEO is passionate about music, but normally because it is the service off which other things can be hung. Amazon, like Apple, is starting the transition towards becoming a services company. While Amazon has made much more progress on video than Apple has, it has made much less progress than Netflix has. Music is the wide appeal proposition that can be used to get people onto the first rung of the services ladder. Just like the CD got people onto the first rung of Amazon’s ladder back in the 90’s. Amazon’s approach to streaming music has thee notable assets that stand it apart from the pack: Targets mainstream music fans: 9.99 AYCE streaming services have drawn most of their users from music aficionados, super fans who like to spend money every month on music and who have the inclination and expertise to lean forward and routinely discover new music. Innovations like Discover Weekly and $1 for 3 months promotions from Spotify have helped broaden appeal but these are tweaks to the model, not revisions. Amazon set its sights on the more mainstream user with Amazon Prime Music, with a smaller, curated catalogue that is free to Prime Users. Pricing […]

Don’t Be Fooled: The Truth Behind Amazon Music Unlimited’s Price

Don’t Be Fooled: The Truth Behind Amazon Music Unlimited’s PriceWith Amazon having finally released their long awaited stand-alone streaming service , the $7.99 sticker price seems to be bucking an industry trend by offering consumers unlimited streaming for less , but the figure is deceptive . _______________________ Guest Post by Bobby Owsinski on Music 3.0 Amazon has finally launched it’s long awaited stand-alone streaming music service and it’s called Amazon Music Unlimited . On the surface it has a number of interesting features that differentiate it from the other major streaming services, but one has to wonder whether potential users will find them compelling enough to subscribe. Perhaps the service’s biggest feature is price. If you’re already an Amazon Prime customer, Amazon Music Unlimited is available for just $7.99 per month or $79 per year, undercutting the norm of $9.99 per month charged by most other services. If you’re not a Prime customer however, you’ll still be charged the customary $9.99 per month. If you happen to own an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot or Amazon Tap device, the price is even lower at $3.99 per month, but music playback only works on that device. If you want to receive the full Amazon Music service on your phone, for instance, you’ll still need to pony up for the full Unlimited tier at either $7.99 monthly if you’re a Prime member, or $9.99 if you’re not. On the surface this seems pretty interesting in that a lower price for streaming is what major industry consultants have been advising for years. Even back at the peak of the CD boom, the average music buyer never purchased $120 worth of music per year, as is the case now with a $9.99 per month streaming plan. Though there’s been a decent amount of streaming penetration at that price point, it’s still only 10% […]
