Spending On SVOD Dwarfs Digital Video Rental and Purchase

“Multiple content players have held onto traditional content windowing strategies for years, but OTT technologies and emerging business models have finally forced these companies to experiment with new windowing strategies,” said Parks Associates research analyst Glenn Hower said in a statement. “New models for movies include day-and-date availability, as with the [Netflix] movie ‘Beasts of No Nation,’ where it was released for streaming the same day as in the theater. For streaming TV shows like [Netflix’s] ‘Jessica Jones’ or [Amazon’s] ‘Transparent,’ viewers can watch full seasons all at once, satisfying binge-happy viewers. Consumers have quickly adopted these new habits as part of their OTT monthly subscriptions.”
