Further evidence that our conventional linear channels are in decline worldwide.

https://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2018...or-challenges/

The National Audit Office says audiences are spending less time watching TV channels and buying fewer DVDs than they have previously. At the same time increased viewing to subscription video on demand services including Netflix and Amazon is impacting traditional pay-TV audiences.

Such changes are being felt by BBC Worldwide – which represents 90 per cent of the BBC’s commercial revenues – and has seen profits fall by 68 per cent from 2012-13 to 2016-17.

Re: Linear is old tech - on demand is the future

Even Ofcom appears to be waking up to the fact that conventional TV channels will not be around for much longer.

It's good that they have looked to the future of broadcasting seriously at last. Too late for Project Kangaroo, unfortunately, although maybe the terrestrials could be persuaded to look at it again.

More evidence:

Quote from The Sun:


The BBC has revealed that youngsters now spend more time watching Netflix than all of its TV channels put together.

Damning figures released by the broadcaster also showed that 15 to 34-year-olds spent more time listening to streaming music services than all of the Beeb’s radio stations too.

The statistics laid bare the challenges facing the BBC to stay relevant in the digital age, as its director general heralded the end of traditional TV viewing.

Tony Hall admitted the “internet-only world” of viewing is “coming soon.”

Yesterday’s annual plan showed that 16-24-year-olds were devoting more of their hours to Netflix than the Beeb’s telly offerings, including iPlayer.

And figures showed 82 per cent of children visit YouTube for on-demand content, half go to Netflix and just 29 per cent use the Beeb’s iPlayer.

Re: Linear is old tech - on demand is the future

The BBC sees its future as an internet broadcaster. This adds considerable weight to the idea that on demand and streaming will replace traditional broadcast channels in the foreseeable future.
