German VOD market fast growing

Very interesting article about the German VOD market on BroadbandTVNews. The German market is special due to the huge amount of free TV channels. This makes any complementary offer difficult: Sky Germany and it’s predecessors have struggled for a long time to even establish some profitable PayTV based on sports and movie content. There is a very fragmented market: 50 players.

Between TVOD, SVOD and Download-to-Own segments, SVOD is the smallest segment now but is projected to be the largest in a few years.Given the total market size and number of players not many people will get rich from this in quite some time.
