US films still getting the lion’s share of promotion on TVOD in Europe

Get it here

  • 25 of the 30 most promoted films by the TVOD services of the sample were produced in the US
  • The 10 most promoted films benefit from 32% of all promotional spots[1].
  • European films benefit from 23% of the promotional activities of the TVOD platforms.

These are the findings of a new report by the European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. The report – The visibility of films and TV content on VOD – was authored by Gilles Fontaine, the Observatory’s Head of the Department for Market Information, and supported by the DG Connect of the European Commission.

The report examines a sample of five European countries: Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Taking a full month of promotion by on-demand services in October 2017, Fontaine analyses promotional activity for films and TV content on 39 transactional video-on-demand services: 19 national services, and 20 national versions of pan-European services.

The report states that European TV content is less actively promoted than European films. Only 18% of all promotional spots for TV series advertised European TV content in the month examined (as opposed to 23% for European films).

Artificial Intelligence in the audiovisual industry

In the audiovisual industry, as in other sectors, the increasing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is likely to announce a paradigm shift, as it can transform the entire value chain.
The Observatory decided to take a closer look at these effects and devoted the 2019 edition of its annual workshop in December to discussing the opportunities and challenges raised by AI in the audiovisual sector, particularly in the journalistic field and in the film sector.
