The European Audiovisual Observatory has just released its analysis of the promotion of films and TV content by 52 TVOD services in 7 European countries: Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The report looks at the origin of content promoted, the intensity and concentration of promotion, the relative share of films and TV content.

NB:

  • A promotion spot is any space dedicated to the promotion of a content on the home page of a service.
  • The United Kingdom data is included in the report as the reference period is prior to the withdrawal.

Key findings include:

• The promotion efforts of the TVOD services focus massively on recent films (2 years or less) : films produced in 2018 and 2019 represented 47% of all films promoted and 84% of promotional spots.

EU28 titles represent 37% of all titles promoted at least once, but 24% of promotional spots. This reflects that US titles are present in more countries and services and therefore benefit from more promotion.
