Is the future free? How will new free models reshape VOD in Europe?
13 October, 2022 h 3:30 pm
A new wave of public and private free-to-consumer services are threatening to disrupt a VOD world that has been dominated by the subscription streaming SVOD giants. The newcomers are offering a variety of models, strategies and options for consumers but raise serious questions: what will be their impact on audience demand? Will they support the original production boom in Europe? How will they fit into a still changing audiovisual ecosystem? And how is the Creative Europe Media Programme supporting these important trends?
