Parks Associates: Live TV Healthy, Just Shifting to Connected Devices

Parks Associates has identified five key video trends that have emerged in today’s shifting media landscape, where “internet-based live content is experiencing a renaissance.”

The new whitepaper—Top 5 Video Trends in an IP-based World, sponsored by Ooyala—asserts that live TV is not dying; it is shifting to connected devices. The rise of platforms like Periscope, Facebook Live and other live streaming apps has raised consumer awareness of and appetite for live content on connected devices. Several companies have joined DISH Network, AT&T, Sky and Sony in offering online pay-TV services. Parks Associates believes that this shift in consumption to online sources for live content will continue into the future. “Live programming can be extremely valuable to producers, distributors and consumers, driving uniquely high volumes of use,” the report states. “As consumers become accustomed to accessing live content anywhere, the volume of consumption for high-profile live events will reach well beyond the audience sizes that are achieved today.”
