Almost a third (32%) of all works, specifically films and TV seasons, found in VOD catalogues are of European origin.
Furthermore, according to a new report of TVOD, SVOD and FOD catalogues by the European Audiovisual Observatory, around one in five (21%) are of EU 27 origin.
Other key findings of the report are:
EU27 works included in catalogues are mainly of non-national origin. Of all EU27 works in VOD catalogues, on average, 79% were of non-national origin in SVOD catalogues, 63% in TVOD and catalogues and 61% in FOD catalogues.
TVOD catalogues had the largest overall number of works on average with 6 567 works (5 477 films and 1 090 TV seasons), followed by SVOD catalogues with 1 660 works on average (990 films and 670 TV seasons) and FOD catalogues with 1 002 works (823 films and 179 TV seasons).
The word European refers to data concerning the 46 Council of Europe member states.
The report was authored by Christian Grece, TV and VOD Analyst within the Observatory’s Department for Market Information. The VOD catalogue data comes from JustWatch and covers 971 VOD catalogues for film data and 497 VOD catalogues for data on TV seasons.
The report was supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Commission.
