DIGITAL DATA
 
Hold on to your remote. Netflix is raising subscription prices 13 percent to 18 percent in the steepest increase since it segued into streaming more than a decade ago. Increased fees will take effect immediately for new subscribers and be phased in over three months for existing subscribers. The news dropped two days before Netflix was set to share quarterly earnings. Netflix Basic will now cost $9, up from $8; HD Standard, its most popular package, will now cost $13, up from $11, and 4K Premium will cost $16, up from $14.
 
Roku responded to backlash yesterday over its decision to carry a channel for Infowars, the website of right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, by saying Infowars was not in violation of its terms of use, according to a report by Digiday. Other platforms including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Apple’s App Store have removed Jones and Infowars from their services.
 
Live TV sports streaming service fubotv reported that user engagement reached an all-time high in December, jumping nearly three times over its December 2017 numbers. Connected TV usage was the largest driver of this engagement, exceeding 70 hours per subscriber in December; users spent nearly 90 hours in December on the leading connected device in that category.

ADVERTISING
 
Among top lines from SpotX’s just-released 2019 Video Advertising Trends Report, which advises that both buyers and sellers remain flexible and open to change:
* The U.S. remains the OTT leader with more than half of all global OTT viewing; Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia are close behind with linear broadcasts in OTT environments and large emphasis on mobile.
* In 2018, OTT viewing grew by 17 percent YoY, total U.S. OTT households now number 59.5 million, 63.5 percent of U.S. households with Wi-Fi.
* Advertisers are gaining access to more data for personalization.
* An investment in local language content will be the key to global growth.
* Pay TV providers still capture 4 hours and 46 minutes of adults’ TV time (live and time-shifted).
* MVPDs will offset subscriber losses and increase net revenues by raising subscription costs.
* Local ad revenues are expected to decline 4.9 percent in 2019 because political dollars will recede before the big 2020 push.
* Consumers are experiencing ad fatigue. Media owners and advertisers must start to live up to new expectations for ads including making them engaging, non-disruptive and relevant.
* Programmatic direct and private marketplace deals will account for 79.6 percent of all programmatic deals by the end of 2019.
