Nielsen Unveils The Economics of On-Demand Programming

Video Downloads, Cable VOD, Internet TV, Music Downloads and Movie Economics (December 12, 2005)

Amidst a din of news stories, announcements, and conferences proclaiming On-Demand the current "it" format of entertainment consumption, Nielsen Entertainment Reports releases today The Economics of On-Demand Programming, an original analysis of current and proposed financial models supporting all varieties of on-demand programming.

Through analysis of several recent on-demand deals and exclusive conversations with industry executives, pioneering programmers and select news analysis of early on-demand endeavors, Economics maps out the new value chain for both content owners and advertisers and provides econometric and comparative media models for the revenue and cost of movies, television shows, music and other content in the on-demand world of VOD, downloading and streaming. Included in the Report are analyses of:

-- Transactional, Subscription and Free VOD Economics:
   > For example, how do the economics of server-based
 channels break down?
-- Ad Supported Models and CPM Premiums:
   > For example, how do on-demand CPMs compare with traditional media
 CPMs, such as broadcast networks, spot TV, radio and magazines?
-- Downloading and Streaming of Both Video and Music:
   > For example, from the content owner's perspective, how do the
 revenues from a video download compare to the advertising revenue for
 a prime time show?
-- Movie Windows, from Theatrical to DVD to VOD:
   > For example, what do studios earn from domestic home video for each
 $1 million in domestic box office and how does the shortening of a
 DVD window impact this equation?
The Report also introduces new economic models based on a thorough quantitative exploration of on-demand variables, an original TV-VOD ad-supported model, including net annual revenues, and a glossary of terms.

The Economics of On-Demand Programming can be purchased through December 31 for $1,495.00 by emailing or by calling 323/817-1958. Effective January 1, Economics will be available at the regular purchase price of $1,995.00.
