Children's video on-demand services boomed in 2016, driven by factors including improved connectivity, new subscription revenue stream and advent of new players outside the traditional TV business. North America and Western Europe companies were early adopters, but Asia Pacific is picking up fast. Proliferation of mobile devices will accelerate growth of the business as smartphone and tablet becoming the primary entertaianment screen for children. Subscription video on-demand business model will be the key focus as children's advertising is hindered by many restrictions. Subsequently, this is expected to push original children's content.
