The Economics of Online Movie Distribution are Compelling

Pay-TV Subscriber Loss

In 2014, movie producers worldwide will earn revenues of $29.6 billion from home video (DVD / Blu-ray) and all forms of TV licensing. They could earn the same amount by licensing all of their movies exclusively to online video entertainment companies — if 45% of the world’s broadband subscribers, or 348 million users, each pay $15 a month.

While 348 million users might seem like a huge number, it is less than half of the worldwide installed base of Pay-TV subscribers (cable TV, satellite TV and IPTV).
