Australia - Digital Media - IPTV - Market Overview

Driven by the successful US-based Netflix IPTV service from America, Several Australian companies have launched new video streaming services or updated their services.

The traditional IPTV model is making something of a comeback, with new video streaming services launched over higher-speed broadband networks and the introduction of competitively priced triple-play models. However, digital rights constraints are making it impossible for the services to take a larger share of the entertainment content market. It is therefore free catch-up TV series rather than movies and sport that are driving the current developments. Movie content available under the basic IPTV subscription - is mostly B- or C-rated; A rated material and new releases are only available at extra charges. BuddeComm remains pessimistic about the current commercial IPTV business models of most of the players. We predict that consolidation will have to happen.

Until now the traditional IPTV products by ISPs have failed to attract large paying-user bases in 2014 there were only around 128 million subscribers globally, and some 800,000 in Australia.

By far the largest growth in IPTV video entertainment comes from user-generated content services such as YouTube, Facebook and a whole new range of services of short, and even super-short, videos. Catch-up TV would be the second largest category.

These developments will significantly influence IPTV developments and future models will therefore have to be substantially different from those of today. The best way to envisage this is to look at the smart devices which provide app-like' interfaces to new content services that supply instant streaming.

BuddeComm estimates that downloading and streaming of video now constitutes well over 50% of all regular online video usage, and that this will only increase over time.
There is a correlation between the availability of high-speed broadband and IPTV usage and it is envisaged that further increases in high-speed broadband penetration will drive new IPTV developments. The rapid growth of smartphones and tablets is also giving this market a boost, as well as new business models such as pay-per-view. New IPTV services are already being streamed over these devices as well as over gaming devices.
