New to SVoD Q4 2018 trends - a dark-tinged quarter
Of the core genres, children’s content and documentary remain strong across all platforms, but reality and entertainment are the sectors to watch. Drama—and to a lesser degree comedy—had a dark tinge this quarter with dark themes and dysfunction key.
Profile: China SVoD market
China's online video market is dominated by China's Internet giants: Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent (BAT). Each of them is investing heavily into their respective video services as video is a key part of their digital entertainment ecosystem.
Profile: Disney+ small but well formed
Disney+ launches into a crowded US SVoD marketplace but of all the anticipated direct to consumer services scheduled to launch through 2019 and 2020, it will be the best positioned to carve out a slice of the American SVoD pie.
