VOD market almost doubled in France in 2008

VOD market is on high growth in France. According to GFK & NPA Conseil, almost 6 millions VOD have been streamed or donwloaded during first 2008 semester; that’s twice last year result! It seems that SVoD is a strong contributor to these results with over 25 000  new subscribers each month (see previous article on VOD pricing & customer experience at nbry.wordpress.com/2007/12/).

Amongst others SVoD offerings, one can now give in to temptation at Free (Free Home Video or Frissons Extremes), 9Cegetel (Pass Kids with Titeuf, Pokémon, Bugs Bunny, Kid Paddle…), and Orange (24/24 Jeunesse, and the expected shortcoming cinema offering based on exclusive deal with HBO & warner).

I guess also that revisited user interface can change a lot in consumer consumption: that seems to be the case for the new interface that we designed at 9Cegetel last year, and which has a strong impact.

Let’s wait now for the end of year to record that VOD revenue overpasse the m€ 50 threshold!

A suivre …

1 L’IPTV, un succès qui se confirme

Les nouveaux chiffres de l’ARCEP confirment le succès de l’IPTV : le nombre de clients pouvant bénéficier de l’IPTV est passé de 1,7 millions (T2 2006) à 3,8 millions (T2 2007), soit une croissance de plus de 2 millions en un an ! Les clients pouvant bénéficier de l’IPTV sont ceux qui disposent d’une offre Triple Play (Internet, Téléphonie, Télévision) et qui sont dans des conditions techniques d’éligibilité (pas trop éloignés du central téléphonique …). Parmi ceux-ci, tous n’ont pas activé le service de télévision (en raccordant leur poste TV à leur décodeur et leur décodeur à leur modem) : on estime le nombre de clients actifs réels de l’IPTV à près de 3 millions, les acteurs majeurs étant Orange, qui a dépassé le million de clients (975 000 en Sept.), 9 avec 750 000 clients à fin 2007 et Free (qui ne communique pas le nombre de ses clients actifs IPTV).
