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.
