Contains Hard to Find Industry Statistics and Market Forecasts

This book contains industry research and analysis that shows growth areas, declining services, and explains why the television industry is rapidly changing. Discover how and why TV systems and services are shifting from a broadcast model to an Internet marketing business structure. If you are making business decisions, job changes, or investing in the TV industry, this book is great for you!

The television industry is shifting from a broadcast model to an Internet marketing business structure. Companies that can adapt, like Google, can become very profitable, while others that cling onto a declining model, like paging companies, may continue to see decreasing numbers. A good understanding of the recent TV industry changes is needed to make business decisions, job changes, and to discover investment options.

In mid 2013, NetFlix had over 37 million paying TV subscribers with double digit growth rates while the largest Cable TV operator, Comcast, had less than 23 million subscribers with a declining subscriber base. Why didn't cable companies become more like NetFlix?

Today, people continue watch about 4 hours of TV per day as they have for the past 10 years. The difference is what they are watching, how they are interacting, and how companies can earn revenue from television services.

Some Key Changes:

Broadcasters will pay fees to reach subscribers while access device manufacturers (e.g. Smart TVs) will collect revenues.
Content owners will pay broadcasters for distributing certain types of branded content.
TV advertising will be highly targeted through the use of anonymous lists & viewing history with more than 10 times the increase in TV ad revenues.
Customers will directly interact with TV commercials and programs while sponsors pay highly for interaction data.
TV applications will provide new revenue streams, such as new activation commissions and streaming service revenue sharing.
Smart broadcasters will capture advertiser sales revenue from TV commercials that have direct ordering options.

TV Business Opportunities gathers and analyzes hard to find information into forms that can be used to understand how the television industry is changing and what it will likely look like in the next 5 to 10 years.
