Gone are the days when the only form of entertainment for passengers in flight was talking to a fellow passenger, looking out the window or reading books. As air travel became increasingly popular, the airline industry recognized the importance of improving passengers’  experiences in an increasingly competitive sector, and in-flight entertainment (IFE) is at the center of this strategy.  IFE has become one of the most significant selection criteria for passengers while booking travel on a particular airline.Over the last few decades, in-flight entertainment systems have seen significant developments, from their initial function as a screen to display an in-flight movie to the device that offers live route views of the flight and a wide range of  video and audio entertainment options.

Why video streaming needs to stop fighting the last consumer war

Article | May 28, 2021

Video streaming services have achieved mainstream engagement, with binge viewing now eclipsing linear TV viewing as the leading form of TV show consumption. While the digital disruptors may revel in their newfound status as the masters of TV consumption, and the TV and film industry are forced to adapt to this new reality, a subtler shift in mindset needs to occur. Streaming services, led by subscription video on demand (SVOD) hegemon Netflix, still operate in the mindset of having a digital native consumer base. For these streaming incumbents, the success of SVOD still rests upon their ability to appeal to younger consumer bases who have a) grown up in a digital environment, and b) are by definition young and eager for new and constantly evolving consumer experiences. Add to this the post-second world war presumption that popular entertainment should always be youth-centric focused, and streaming is still de-facto a youth-orientated proposition.

Music and podcasts are competing for the same time

Article | May 28, 2021

The pandemic changed media consumption.Consumers acquired an extra 12% of entertainment timeand though everything was up, some categories grew much faster than others. One of the biggest gainers was spoken word audio, with podcasts and audiobooks seeing dramatic rises and while music hours grew too, the increase was below 12%, which means that music lost share. In the current entertainment environment of plenty this may be an academic concern, but when life returns to some form of normality (commutes, going out, gyms etc.) some or all of that extra 12% of entertainment time will go, which means that growing by less than the market average could translate into decline.
