Cord-cutters and cord-nevers, people who have never subscribed to a traditional pay-TV service, are a serious issue for the pay-TV industry. In fact, GfK’s 2016 Ownership and Trend Report found that 25 percent of U.S. homes don’t subscribe to a pay-TV service, and the number of homes cutting the cord from cable and satellite continues to increase at a rapid pace.One of the largest pay TV operators in the United States sought to capitalize on this trend by offering an all-new OTT subscription service that includes live and ondemand content. The goal was to successfully compete with other MVPDs, OTT content providers like Hulu and Netflix, and mobile operators that offer streaming services, such as T-Mobile.

Those who have been following MIDiA’s games coverage for a while will have seen our posts about the growth problem of esports and suggestions around putting focus on the entertainment angle, rather than just on the sports angle, in order to most effectively capitalise on the opportunity. We have known for a while that esports viewers are only a subset of the broader games-related video viewing audience.We also know that esports audiences enjoy live entertainment in general, more so than many other entertainment consumer segments. MIDiA’s Q1 2021 consumer survey enabled us to dive deeper into how this opportunity can be approached. As a part of our upcoming Esports Viewer Dossier 2021 update, we have looked at the esports viewers, in comparison to consumers who say they watch games-related videos but not esports.

Instagram continues to perform strongly despite inconsistent brand identity

Article | June 30, 2021

Over the last few months Instagram has done its best to capitalise on the latest social media success tactics, often at the cost of its own original user proposition. The photo-sharing app for friends now offers Reels, imitating TikTok’s success. It has rolled out an option to hide Likes, the iconic feature which has characterised social media as a whole since inception. And it now is introducing ‘suggested posts’ to users’ feeds, sorted by topics a profile states they are interested in – potentially putting these ahead of photos and videos shared by profiles they actually follow. Directly mimicking TikTok, this seems to diverge very little in practice from hashtags, which are its original discovery feature.
