IN THE NEWS
Disney+ is 30 percent more valuable than the average streaming service, according to Fandom’s new “State of Streaming” report, which notes Disney’s focus on genre fans and programming gives it a strong leg up. Fandom was founded in 2004 by Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales and Angela Beesley Starling and says it receives more than 300 million unique visitors per month. Conducted in January, the streaming study took the temperature of 5,500 global Fandom users.
Among other key takeaways:
* 61 percent of consumers believe their streaming services are too expensive
* 32 percent of fans are looking for bundles with gaming subscriptions services
* 74 percent of consumers are willing to wait until they can see the movie for free as part of one of their subscription plans
* 45 percent claim streaming services that establish partnerships, ie, offering packages with food delivery services, would enhance their viewing experience and drive loyalty
Netflix stock yesterday plunged more than 20 percent after the streamer reported its first subscriber loss in a decade. The subscriber tally fell to 221.64 million globally, down 200,000 from the end of Q4 2021, an unexpected report. Netflix also fell short of revenue predictions, reporting $7.868 billion, up less than 10 percent from a year ago, with earnings per share falling 6 percent from a year ago to $3.53. “Our revenue growth has slowed considerably as our results and forecast below show,” Netflix wrote in its quarterly letter to shareholders. “Streaming is winning over linear, as we predicted, and Netflix titles are very popular globally. However, our relatively high household penetration—when including the large number of households sharing accounts—combined with competition, is creating revenue growth headwinds.”

UPFRONT NEWS & CALENDAR
One message came through loud and clear at SeeHer’s virtual SheFront on Tuesday: Use the GEM (Gender Equality Measure) score. The score quantifies gender bias in advertising and programming, and with research showing a correlation between gender equality and advertising success, not only do “we have an obligation to use the right language and the imagery,” as Oprah Winfrey noted during the presentation’s opening, it’s good business.
P&G is committed to “a marketing system that is free from gender bias,” according to the company’s Chief Brand Officer, Marc Pritchard, who said P&G is “committed to choose equal in everything we do.”
SeeHer is “everywhere in media,” pointed out the organization’s President, Jeannine Shao Collins, a fact made clear as a constellation of senior executives from Paramount, Warner Bros. Discovery, NBCUniversal, Disney, Fox and more who offered examples of programming that celebrates and elevates women. “The future is female,” said Laura Molen, President, NBCU Advertising Sales and Partnerships.
The SeeHer Programming Award was given to OWN’s “All Rise.” In accepting the honor, OWN TV Network & OTT Streaming President Tina Perry said, “We are delighted to give a home to ‘All Rise,’ whose characters reflect our audience with powerful affirmation. OWN and SeeHer both deeply value creating authentic storylines and role models through television, and we are honored to be in partnership on this important mission.”
