The growing AVOD market – listen to the latest episode of TV Watch now

The latest episode of TV Watch, a new podcast from Digital TV Europe is now live.

Hosted by Digital TV Europe deputy editor Jonathan Easton, TV Watch is a new podcast looking at the biggest news and trends in the worlds of broadcasting, streaming and everything else to do with the TV industry in Europe and further afield.

Streaming is the future of video viewing, but with purse-strings tightening for audiences, will free ad-supported streamers be the way forward?

In the latest episode, we speak with Ed Barton, chief analyst at Omdia about the ad-supported streaming market in 2020.

We also get a view from the inside of a major AVOD with Henry Embleton, head of ad products and revenue at anime platform Crunchyroll, who talks about the streamer’s business model, its relationship with parent company WarnerMedia and where he sees the market going.

TV Watch is available on all major podcast platforms including Spotify, Soundcloud, iTunes and TuneIn.
