Survey Report: The State of Direct to Consumer Internet Video Services

The “direct to consumer” or Over the Top (OTT) video services market continues to mature as 78% of U.S. consumers subscribe to at least one OTT service (PwC). What does this mean for media companies? Plenty. It is not only a major revenue opportunity, but it is also an essential brand-building tool.

nScreenMedia recently surveyed 389 managers with responsibility for the technical implementation of video-streaming services in order to find out how media companies and enterprises are building out their own OTT video ventures. The results show that:

  1. Quality is top of mind for OTT providers as high-definition and ultra-high definition (UHD) are growing rapidly.
  2. Piracy/content theft is by far the largest security concern.
  3. Despite the continuing popularity of the subscription model, ads are the most popular way to monetize a service.
