Advertisement $16 billion worth of broadband video by Om Malik Dec 8, 2005 - 1:00 PM PST 5 Comments ABI Research says that the broadband video market will hit $16 billion by 2010. Advertisement 5 Comments Jesse Kopelman December 9th, 2005 Penguin: maybe, but maybe not. While I have watched hundreds of programs on Comcast’s (non-IP) VOD, I have never paid (extra) for any of them. Penguin December 8th, 2005 i’ve heard that one cable company said it will be offering up to 900m IP VODs /month by 2010… that’s gotta add up to some serious revenues. Mike Wolf December 8th, 2005 It’s a figure that represents only the video over public Internet, not telco TV or closed systems IPTV. And it doesn’t include mobile/wireless video. I pesonally have my doubts about a mobile video market of $27 billion, since that figure exceeds the total DVD market in the US, and rivals what is spent yearly on cable TV in advertising. Remember, watching video on a mobile phone is NOT the same as a TV; consumers can’t sit and watch enough long form content on such a small screen to actually generate that much revenue. -Mike Wolf – ABI Research Russ December 8th, 2005 $16? That’s it? They said a week ago that Mobile Video alone will be worth $27 billion! http://www.businessweek.com/technology/content/oct2005/tc20051011_9768_tc024.htm?campaign_id=rss_tech I wonder what it’ll all be worth next week? :-) -Russ Comments are closed.
