Global Box Office revenue was US$40.6 billion in 2017. Warner Brothers, Paramount, Disney, Netflix, Amazon, Fox, Columbia and many other companies are vying for content consumers. Worldwide, the industry spends US$240 billion per year on buying content for broadcasting, this is a growing trend of 10% annually.Creating the much desired high quality content in larger quantities is in the current system not possible. The film industry has high barriers to entry for everyone, is overly complex and lacks transparency not only creating unnecessary risks, but also missed opportunities for all parties. Even award winning writers, producers and directors often have enormous challenges to secure funds for their next project.

Hi-Res audio: It’s all about a maturing market

Article | May 21, 2021

Music streaming contrasts sharply with video streaming. While the video marketplace is characterised by unique catalogues, a variety of pricing and diverse value propositions music streaming services are all at their core fundamentally the same product. When the market was in its hyper-growth phase and there were enough new users to go around, it did not matter too much that the streaming services only had branding, curation and interface to differentiate themselves from each other. Now that we are approaching a slowdown in the high-revenue developed markets, more is needed. Which is where Hi-Res comes in.

Netflix versus Amazon Prime Video – depth versus breadth

Article | June 10, 2021

The first half of 2021 has been a year of continued change and disruption for subscription video. The global incumbent subscription video on demand (SVOD) leaders, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, have been busy signalling to the financial markets how they intend to entrench their market dominance in light of the ongoing market acquisition pushes unleashed by the D2C disruptors following the D2C ‘big bang’ moment of Q4 2019 – Q2 2021. Netflix announced in January that it was no longer going to borrow on the financial markets to fund its day-to-day operations – specifically for its content acquisition budget, which is now driven predominately by commissioning original content for its service. This leaves the SVOD leader with $14.9 billion of outstanding long-term debt to service as it seeks to live within its means by commissioning future content from its ongoing cashflow. In Q1 2021 alone Netflix spent $500 million on servicing this debt pile versus $1.7 billion in net income generated over the same period.
