Introduction

In the last 12 months, multiple public service and commercial broadcasters in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Spain, and South Korea have announced alliances to launch and operate collaborative OTT video and TV platforms.

Highlights

  • Broadcasters are increasingly cooperating with each other to create OTT video on demand (VOD) and linear streaming platforms. These pool content, audiences, expertise, and technology from the partners to provide more appealing platforms to audiences and advertisers alike. Theoretically, the platforms should offer larger and better catalogues, attracting larger audiences and hence larger-scale data capture, enabling finer segmentation and more effective ad targeting.
  • Broadcaster alliances are unlikely to significantly shift the market dominance of Netflix and Amazon across European markets, but they may become useful complements to the dominant services, and this should heavily influence go-to-market strategies.
