    Long Form, Social Media, and Gaming Online Video grow to $171.5 billion market by 2025, as core pay TV market continues decline

    Rethink Technology Research finds that long-form video from outside the traditional pay TV ecosystem will grow aggressively, as new generation of viewers strays farther from reach

    Our latest Rethink TV forecast demonstrates the slow decline of pay TV, and the rise of the OTT market – both SVoD, and this new sector. So while the growth in SVoD that stems from the conventional TV and movie industry does more than offset the losses we see in pay TV line, what Rethink TV wanted to do was quantify ‘the other’ – long-form video content that does not originate from TV and film studios, that isn’t delivered over pay TV infrastructure, and that is often available freely to viewers.

    Defining this sector has been difficult, but we chose to focus on three constituent parts – Long Form online video, Social Media video, and Gaming video. Collectively, for the purposes of this forecast, we’ll refer to them as LSG.

    Our research shows how LSG grows faster than SVoD, and is on track to close the gap with pay TV within a couple of decades. That event could be the end of pay TV as we know it and of course sports rights, as they de-couple from pay TV could have a huge part to play in that, and we have already published a forecast on those.

    As Android TV Operator Tier has taken much of the world by storm in recent years – and the technology has even begun to make its mark in the US – overlapping pools of vendors have formed, each wielding a disparate set of keys to the Android TV treasure trove.

    How can pay TV operators better navigate these contrasting partner ecosystems? Should vendors just join as many initiatives as possible, or pick wisely? Who will be the winners and losers from this vendor-led fragmentation? Is this market becoming a case of keep your friends close, but your enemies closer?

    Faultline aims to answer these questions and more during our Android TV Arms Race webinar.

    Presented by Tommy Flanagan, Editor of Faultline, and featuring:

    Michael Lantz, CEO | Accedo
    Mark Seidenfeld, Head of Android TV Business Development APAC | Google
    Anthony Smith-Chaigneau, Senior Director Product Marketing | Nagra
    Sascha Prüter, Chief Product Officer | Vewd

    Android TV will emerge as the dominant OS for set tops over the next five years, everywhere by in North America, where RDK will remain strong for some time to come. But Android’s rise will be much less successful on smart TVs. The continued presence of proprietary OSs on major smart TV brands, notably Samsung with Tizen and LG with WebOS, will hold Android back there, as will China’s growing adoption of Huawei’s Harmony as the national video OS.

    The trade dispute between China and the US, with resulting concerns over access to Android updates, has galvanized the Chinese government to push for a major independent national OS, with Harmony the overwhelming hot favorite which will become the ubiquitous cross platform OS for China, and which will spill over into other parts of the Asia Pacific and into some Latin American countries.

    The resulting forecast is part of our Rethink TV service and this webinar gives headline conclusions and some data insights.

    Towards the close of 2019, there was something of a war of words in the WiFi software space between a handful of vendors, resulting in a series of heated and well-received articles in Faultline. This got us thinking. Instead of playing the messenger and publishing the opinions of technology vendors, why don’t we get these competing companies in the same place at the same time in the form of a webinar – giving each a chance to give a short pitch followed by a Q&A session from ourselves and the audience.

    This will provide an opportunity to help attendees better understand the WiFi technology industry but, more importantly, offer a chance to directly address claims from rivals – setting us up perfectly for an exciting 2020 for WiFi.
