Following a slow expansion of economic activity during 2013, however, much of Europe still struggling to recover from the impact of the 2008 financial crisis. Within this framework, the TV market performed unevenly across countries, finally managing to grow by a humble +0.4%.

All around Western Europe, advertising spending has been hit by the economic slowdown. Also due to the absence of big TV events, Western European markets saw advertising revenues decline by 1.6% in 2013. While still representing the largest slice of the market revenues, pay TV kept its slowing pace, due to increasing competition from online players, aggressive discounting and cheaper double- and triple-play prices. In 2013 pay TV revenues grew by 1.5% compared to 2012.

Current market trends are fundamentally changing the industry. The growth of traditional revenue streams is declining as new revenue models emerge. Internet content has entered the traditional TV screen which at the same time lost its role as unique possibility to consume audiovisual content at home. Attention is no longer focused on one screen only. Consumers demand full control over media experiences and unrestricted access anywhere, any time and on any device

The response of many to date has been to launch video over IP services that have been defensive or ‘me too’ plays,with only limited integration or ability to exploit synergies with existing video delivery platforms. But future success requires much more than integrating the traditional content supply chain into various digital channels. To go further, traditional providers must develop new –and very different –digital capabilities
