Technology investments in the TV4.0 era: How are they impacted by business model modifications? The diagnostic is easy to summarize but most difficult to solve:
- Content costs are skyrocketing
- Linear channel revenue from carriage fees and adds is diminishing
- Revenue from non-linear distribution is still marginal
- In most countries public funding is frozen or diminishing
Consequently, the transformation impacts the way media organizations tend to make technology investments, arbitrate between make, buy or rent and changes the way they interact with technology vendors and service providers.
