As Disney, WarnerMedia and NBCUniversal prepare to launch new streaming services, Hub Research released it Best Bundle survey, in which 24% of respondents said they felt they had too many online TV subscriptions. That’s up from 14% in 2018. But while one third of those surveyed said they would drop at least one subscription before adding a new one, 64% said they’d keep all their subs even if they add a new service.
A recent report by eMarketer estimates that there will be more than 29 million cord cutters in 2019 and more than 27 million cord-nevers. Linear OTT users say they are as satisfied as cable TV subscribers, according to the report. A study by ZypMedia revealed that nearly half of consumers are tuning in to local or free ad-supported streaming services – 47% and 46%, respectively. The study was conducted by The Harris Poll, which surveyed more than 2000 U.S. consumers.
The OTT monitoring and compliance technology market will get a considerable lift from streaming video service growth over the next five years, according to Frost & Sullivan, which predicts the market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 15.8% – from $62 million to $149.7 million by 2024. The increase will be driven by demand for broadcast-quality streaming video – which opens opportunities for vendors. “OTT/TV Everywhere (TVE) vendors tend to develop M&C solutions in-house during the R&D phase and then seek third-party vendors to scale up for operations,” noted Robert Cavin, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Companies will also highlight the value of providing high-quality OTT M&C solutions to reduce churn by increasing quality of service. These solutions can be offered both individually and as part of a total OTT solution.”

YouTube ads are getting longer, according to a report from MediaRadar. Analyzing video ads from January 2018-February 2019, MediaRadar found the percentage of six-second ads dropped by 20%, to 16.5% of all ads, while the number of 30-second ads rose by 19%, to make up 24% of all ads. “It signifies that long-form digital video content still has a crucial role to play; possibly because longer video ads prove more effective, as they allow for more information to be conveyed,” said Todd Krizelman, CEO of MediaRadar.
Facebook drew criticism for not taking down (as YouTube did) a doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that made it appear she was slurring her words at an event. Facebook reviewers did acknowledge the video as false, and the social media giant reduced its distribution and added an explanatory article in news feeds where it appeared,
Instagram’s long-form video platform, IGTV, announced it will now support horizontal as well as vertical video. When it launched last June, the platform didn’t allow landscape uploads, but found creators are averse to shooting in a format that’s difficult to reuse. “In many ways, opening IGTV to more than just vertical videos is similar to when we opened Instagram to more than just square photos in 2015,” said the company. “It enabled creativity to flourish and engagement to rise – and we believe the same will happen again with IGTV.”
Snapchat scrubbed X-rated AR lenses that adult entertainment company Naughty America distributed on the service to promote its business. However, the studio continued to distribute the source files that allow Snapchat users to build X-rated lenses of their own. Naughty America CEO Andreas Hronopoulos told Variety he understood the lenses to be in compliance with Snapchat’s policies – an argument that didn’t hold water with Snapchat, which took down Naughty America’s account.
