Television (TV) has been experiencing a lot of changes in recent years. These changes have blurred the lines of the definition of TV and what it consists of. Internet video has been gaining popularity during the past decade, and video on demand (VoD) has become a part of people’s lives. VoD provides viewers with the option to view video content when best suited for them, and by this it has had a replacement effect on traditional TV. Instead of watching something on TV on the moment it is aired, the program can now be viewed online when it is most convenient for the viewer.

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.

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.
