The rise of OTT content is most exciting for companies in this sector. Some 82% of respondents stated that monetising content through OTT is a major growth area for their business. In parallel, 25% of participants expect more than half of their views to be driven by OTT in 2018, more than double the 11% whose views are mainly driven by OTT today.While there is much optimism about the potential for virtual reality and the internetof-things, survey participants generally believe they will have to achieve greater scale before they become a significant source of revenue.

Watch out Warzone and Fortnite: Ubisoft is coming after free-to-play

Article | May 17, 2021

Ubisoft announced last week that it is adding specific focus on free-to-play, alongside its AAA catalogue. In doing so, it is following a route that has been very successful for Activision with its Warzone strategy. Free-to-play games which draw audiences via big franchise names and monetise via in-game spending are going to be increasingly common among AAA publishers. The focus on in-game spending and particularly on the cosmetic, rather than the progress-related, parts will be the key revenue component. As games become less finite and more perpetual (consumer goal is less about ‘finishing them’ and more and ‘playing/spending time in them’), the opportunity to monetise needs that stem from this perpetual engagement (e.g. socialising or expression) starts to outweigh the mere monetisation of access to a packaged product. Simultaneously, free-to-play games also act as a powerful marketing driver for AAA releases as they come out, as well as streamability and word of mouth for the franchise.

Super-bundle plans reportedly missing from Apple Music’s new deals

Article | March 14, 2020

This is the ‘super-bundle’ that we (and the wider industry) have been speculating about ever since Apple revealed plans to launch subscription services for video, news and games – Apple TV+, Apple News+ and Apple Arcade respectively. From Apple’s point of view (not to mention its customers’) a single, discounted subscription covering its range of services makes a lot of sense. Music rightsholders are wary, however, with plenty of uncertainty around how the royalties from such a super-bundle would be divided between the different forms of entertainment.
