Amid claims that the BBFC’s recent deal to allow Netflix to certificate its own content under licence will further skew the market in favour of the bigger players, the ratings agency’s Policy Director Murray Perkins explains the rationale behind the agreement.
Ampere Analysis Director of Research Richard Cooper builds on his recent presentation to MESA Europe to provide a broad picture of the UK home entertainment market and some forecasts for the next couple of years.
Netflix will exceed 10 million subscribers in the UK this year, according to research and strategy consultancy MTM’s latest edition of its syndicated market tracker ScreenThink.
Netflix announced it will return to the junk bond market to raise $2 billion to fund new programming that will in turn drive yet more subscription growth.
Netflix returned to gravity-defying growth in the third quarter to Sept. 20, announcing that it added 6.9 million subscriptions worldwide to total 137 million subs, of which 7 million are free.
