On the quiet evolution of streaming habits of AFL supporters here in Melbourne, Australia:
Tigers fan Kevin Passmore used to go to every Richmond home game but he’s among those now choosing to watch games from their living rooms.

“UK broadcasters are finding success in catch-up TV as almost half of consumers (49%) watch both SVoD and catch-up services.
Will broadcasters from the big 5 European markets learn from the UK’s catch-up success?”

“19% of UK consumers are spending the equivalent of 2 working days per week streaming content despite an increasing reluctance to pay for services.”
Viewers’ appetite for advertising is growing in line with their hunger for content. Could AVOD be the new way forward?
“As the amount of content multiplies exponentially for viewers, in both what and where they can watch, video services and content distributors have an even more pressing need to manage the evolving global content licensing business.
In a few clicks, viewers have more video choice than ever before, and the precise location of the viewer has serious implications. Where previously geo-gating might have been enough, now customers have many more locations and methods to view content. Buying or renting? Mobile, desktop, or connected TV? Streaming or downloadable? SD or HD? AVOD, TVOD, or SVOD? Are there content blackout rights? Subtitles or dubbed? Was a promotional offer used?”
