Netflix has declared this the 'era of internet TV'. It's certainly true that consumers have embraced the availability of internet-connected devices to consume more programming online and on demand. But linear TV companies are also ramping up their investments in content to stand out in a multi-platform world, while a spate of mergers and acquisitions has created closer links between broadcasting and production as well as ever-larger content-creating groups.

Highlights:

  • In the US—which accounts for more than one-third of the $130 billion annual investment in TV programming—advertising spend is following viewers online and the pay TV industry is losing subscribers
  • Online platforms Netflix and Amazon have ramped up their investment in programming, spending $7.5 billion last year—more than most countries, including Germany and France
  • Production and broadcasting are increasingly interlinked, with broadcasters ProSiebenSat1, ITV and RTL Group the most active buyers of production companies over the last five years
  • Hard on the heels of a boom in scripted production by basic cable players in the US, online platforms have increased further the output of original programming from the US
  • TV production has become highly concentrated in the US, with the major studios supplying a majority of scripted programming for the broadcast networks and branching out into cable and online
  • Outside the US, independent production remains more fragmented, despite the creation of ever-larger groups, most recently Banijay Group and Endemol Shine
